John Achee Jr, is a lifelong resident of Assumption Parish. His family owned land and a camp in Bayou Corne since before he was born, and he has fond childhood memories of going to the camp to fish, swim, hunt and enjoy the outdoors. When his father passed away in 2008, the camp was passed on to John and his siblings. Although John is not a permanent resident, he has fought to bring attention, awareness and response and is committed to fight for the families, lives, properties and environment affected by the disaster. John lives by his father's motto to "never start a fight, but if one is started with you, you damn well finish it".
