I am a life-long resident of Joliet, attended our local public schools and graduated from Joliet West High School. I received an Associates Degree in Electronics Engineering, from Joliet Junior College, a Bachelor of Science, Occupational Education, from Southern Illinois University and an MBA in Operations, Technology, and Innovation from Benedictine University.

I am a veteran of the United States Navy. I was employed at Caterpillar early in my career and spent 30 years working with high-tech Telecom companies with extensive experience managing multi-millions dollar projects and budgets and large engineering staffs.

I’m married to Debra Anderson and together we have a daughter, Lauren, son-in-law Marcus Jameson and two grandchildren.

My father, Frank Ragusa, was the Battalion Chief for the Joliet Fire Department and my uncle, Phillip Ragusa was a Captain on the Joliet Police Department.
