Raised in Cinnaminson, Mark attended Cinnaminson High School and helped lead his team to a basketball State Championship. He was later inducted into the Cinnaminson High School Basketball Hall of Fame. In 2019, Mark was proud to serve as Assistant Coach for Moorestown High School’s Basketball Team as they won the State Championship, their first since 1960. This earned him the unusual distinction of winning a high school State Championship as both a player and coach.
For the past 18 years, Mark has lived in Moorestown with his wife, Cheryl, and their five children: Joseph, Dominick, Vincent, Anna Lucille, and Marco. He is a past President of the Moorestown Youth Basketball Association.
