I, Andrew Humes have known John W. Carver III for the past 26 years. My wife, Mary, has
known him for 19 years. We can personally attest that we have worked intimately with him
during this time in a variety of capacities. This man has a genuine love for all people. At his
core, all of his thoughts and intents are motivated to helping other people achieve their
goals and dreams in life. He is consistently positive and extremely encouraging.
He is truly the most giving individual person that we have ever known. He has gone out of
his way to help multitudes of other people even to the point of sacrificing his own time,
money and life. He works unceasingly to be a friend and a real blessing to everyone that he
encounters in life. He has a pure unprejudiced, genuine caring attitude towards all people.
He sets a very high standard for his personal ethical conduct. In all the years we have
known him, and worked with him, we have never seen him do or even consider doing
anything unethical. He has a very high moral and ethical standard. He practices what he
preaches. He has a work ethic that is mind boggling. He is dedicated to his God, his family,
to his work and to his church. This man is one of the finest men that we have ever known.
We would trust him in any and every way.
My name is Peter Henry. I am writing this letter on behalf of John Carver. I am proud to write
that I have known John and sustained a friendship over the past twenty-four (24) years at
least, a time span stemming from high school to present. Without hesitation, I can attest to
John’s unquestionable integral and moral aptitude.
Over the years, it would be John that I would consider to turn to for personal guidance
and motivation. I believe his resolve to maintain the highest level of respect and honor
transcends into his personal and business affairs. John’s character is such, that I aspire to
and I am sure those persons that have come into contact with him are compelled to ask the
same standards of themselves.

I have had the privilege of knowing and working with John Carver since 1997. During these
nine years, I have had contact with John as a client, a volunteer with our agency and as a
friend. I cannot think of a person who I admire more for their compassion, integrity and
My involvement with John allows me to comment positively on his financial integrity, his
honesty and his absolute commitment to his family. I am available at any time to answer
questions regarding this fine man.

I am writing to show support for Mr. John Carver. I have known Mr. Carver for over four
years as a business colleague and friend. During this time Mr. Carver has always
conducted himself in a respectful and professional manner. I have also found Mr. Carver to
be legally and morally beyond reproach. John often goes beyond expectations to treat
people fairly and to always give the benefit of the doubt. Please feel free to contact me if
you need further information.,
I have known John Carver III for more than 20 years and remain in contact with him on a
weekly basis. I have known Mr. Carver as a Minister, Salesman, Father, Entrepreneur and
Husband. In all his dealings with me personally and in my observations, I have found him
kind, giving, encouraging and supportive. I have observed his dealings in precarious
circumstances regarding personal, professional, racial and ministerial issues and found
them to be with the utmost integrity. A devoted father and friend Mr. Carver is one of few
whom I have had the pleasure of knowing so many years.
Over the years I have seen Pastor Carver go out of his way to help myself and so many
others. When I was looking for employment after graduating college, he was willing to
help however he could – whether it was helping with my resume, being a reference or
giving me counsel regarding skills and a career path. This was just one of many
occasions he has extended his generosity and support. He continually shows his
genuine care and concern for those in need, his church, his friends, and others.
Pastor Carver is someone I consider a role model in my life. He is a man of great
character, who truly leads by example. His honesty, integrity, and straightforwardness
are qualities I strive to emulate.
I have known John Carver for more than 20 years and can attest to the quality of
character he has exemplified over the years.
At the top of the list is compassion. John Carver has always been a person of action
who does his best to meet the needs of those he comes in contact with. I cannot number
the times when he has given encouraging words, self-help audio or book resources, or
simply called to ask if he can help in any way. This is not as isolated occurrence but a
reoccurring pattern that has impacted quite a number of mutual friends and associates.
John’s love for people and especially children of unfortunate means has been truly
remarkable. John and his wife have adopted six children from Russian orphanages, all
who have been challenged with their own set of physical and emotional circumstances.
To undertake this effort not once or twice, but six times, practically to the limit of his
resourcefulness is truly a testament to his life priorities and more profoundly his love.
As a business leader with over two-dozen men and women regularly seeking his
“coaching” and advice both professionally and personally, a father of six well-adjusted
children, a representative of an adoption organization and a community leader, there is
no doubt that the sentiment and character qualities reflected in this letter are readily
shared by many others. In my estimation, John has made the betterment of people an
integral part of his life pursuits.
In all my encounters with John Carver I have never know him to be anything but a
hardworking, compassionate man of integrity—truly a rare breed that anyone would
welcome as a friend.
I write this letter without reservation.

I can confirm that John Carver is a man of great integrity, is extremely dedicated to his
family and work, and is entirely concerned for the well being of others. At all times I have
found him to be dependable, honest, conscientious and peace-loving. John consistently
goes out of his way to encourage and assist those in need.
There have been many instances when John has gone out of his way to help individuals
or families in need by providing financial assistance, purchasing groceries and offering
his friendship and guidance. He has consistently proven himself to be an individual with
high moral values and great compassion, who would not hesitate to forgo personal gain
in order to help someone in need. He is a rare and unique individual who consistently
looks for opportunities to serve rather then to be served. I therefore can recommend
John Carver as an individual of the highest character whose personal convictions would
cause him to act with honesty and integrity in any situation.
For you information, I am a wife, mother, professional employee, and faithful citizen of
the United States. I am happy to provide further information if required.
For what it’s worth, you have done so much for me and your were very inspirational to
me whenever you spoke at our Friday meetings. Your CDs and handouts are
awesome. I still have them and pull them out when I need a little extra to keep me
going. Things definitely changed after you left. You brought such a wonderful spirit to
the office and always stayed positive and realistic at the same time. I felt more
comfortable speaking to you than my own manager.
You are a person I can go to that will tell me not always what I want to hear but what I
need to hear. You lead by example which is so important. I respect your honesty and
dedication to your family and the people like me who you have helped along the way.
God places people in our lives for a reason and meeting you at Senior Life was no
accident. You are a wonderful spirit and I feel blessed to have you as an inspirational
leader and motivator in my life.
Thank you for all that you do and have done.
“John is a visionary, he is one of the most ardent students of great leaders and
leadership I know. His goal is to leave those that he comes into contact with via work,
socially, or through a business dealing better than they were before they met him.
Compassion is what you get get when you meet John, he always puts you first, and
you are the most important person in the conversation when you speak with him. He is
a giver, not many people are today, but he truly is, and I'm better for having known
him. I whole heartedly recommend John Carver for his integrity, knowledge, and
leadership skills.” August 26, 2010
