John R Crafton Jr.

Dining Services Director

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, my culinary journey began at the young age of 16. I kickstarted my career at the Marriott hotel, where my love for food blossomed. Over the span of 15 years, I dedicated myself to growing within the company, holding various roles such as Food Production Manager, Sous Chef, Banquet Chef, and Executive Chef. 

My quest for culinary excellence led me to traverse four different states, where I honed my skills under the mentorship of exceptional leaders and received formal training at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America (CIA). This invaluable experience shaped me into the chef I am today. 

Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working in diverse settings, including restaurants, universities, and senior living communities. Each environment presented unique challenges and opportunities, allowing me to expand my culinary repertoire and connect with incredible individuals along the way. 

I am thrilled to bring my expertise to the dining services here, where I am eager to contribute my skills, creativity, and passion for food. Meeting new people, sharing my love for culinary arts, and creating memorable dining experiences are what drive me each day. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to do what I love and make a difference in the lives of those I serve.

Hello, my name is Clayton. I was born and raised here in Georgia. I have four beautiful children and two grandchildren.

Since I was little, I have been interested in the medical field because most of my family works in this sector. However, my background was in the construction sector, and until 2014 I could fulfill my dream of serving in the medical sector by moving into the maintenance director role in a skilled nursing facility, after that I just fell in love with senior living, I don’t see myself doing anything else in my career. I love my job as maintenance director, and I genuinely enjoy serving our seniors and their families.
