“Hello, my name is John Bischoff. I was born and raised in Peekskill and have been a part of the Assumption parish since I was a child. I received my sacraments at Assumption Church after going through Assumption’s religious education program. Upon graduating from Peekskill High School in 2002, I attended the College of Mount Saint Vincent from 2002 through 2005. In the summer of 2005, I started working at Assumption Cemetery. I have been blessed with a wonderful family – my amazing mother Catherine, my sister Christine, my niece Ziva and nephew Bennie – and let’s not forget my dog Princess! I am currently the Cemetery Manager and have two great employees: Gary Diehl and Billie Clark. I’m honored to be a part of such a caring parish while also serving the Lord and our community by fulfilling one of the seven corporal works of mercy – to bury the dead."
