John Upchurch for Congress

Meet John Upchurch—Husband. Father. Local.

John Upchurch was born in St. Augustine, Florida and has lived in Ormond Beach for over 36 years. While growing up in the 6th District, John earned the rank of Eagle Scout and spent afternoons volunteering at the Halifax Humane Society and the Center for the Blind. At the age of 16, John was hired as a lifeguard on the Volusia County Beach Patrol, where he worked for six summers. He received his degree in economics from Furman University, and holds a law degree from Stetson College of Law. He has been married to his law school sweetheart for 22 years, and they are raising two sons who attend the very same schools that John once did.

After law school, John worked in Tallahassee in the Office of the Florida Attorney General. In his capacity at the Sales and Use Tax Section, he was part of the team that engaged in landmark litigation against the tobacco industry. After moving back to Ormond Beach in 2001, he was named a partner at the law firm of Heebner, Baggett, Upchurch & Garthe. He also operates his family’s small travel business.

John is a longtime volunteer at the Ormond Beach Soccer Club, coaching youth soccer for more than 14 seasons, and serves as an assistant Scoutmaster for the local Boy Scouts of America. From 2006 to 2007, John served as President of the Volusia County Bar Association.

John is running because he recognizes the Washington political machine is fundamentally broken, and the 6th District deserves a representative who knows our community, understands our issues, and will stand up for our people.
