John E. Nevola makes his literary debut with The Last Jump, a historical novel based on United States airborne operations in Europe during World War II. The study of this conflict has been the author’s lifelong passion and he weaves a compelling tale of courage and sacrifice set in a historically accurate backdrop in an extraordinary time in American history. A retired Information Technology executive, Nevola has been widely published in business magazines with numerous articles on disaster recovery and terrorism. He authored a column for a military newspaper while serving in the United States Army and is a member of the Military Writer’s Society of America. Nevola was born in New York City and is a graduate of Cardinal Hayes High School and the College of Aeronautics. He resides in Mount Arlington, New Jersey with his wife of 50 years. They have four children and seven grandchildren. Proceeds from all of his books are donated to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund to assist children of the fallen with college tuition.
