John Wall

John Wall, 30, a native of Huntsville, is following the footsteps of his grandfather, father and uncle, who all have worked or are currently working for NASA. He has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tenn., and a master's in the same field from Auburn University in Auburn, Ala. He has supported NASA as a contractor with Dynamic Concepts since 2007. “I'm doing exactly the kind of work I was passionate in pursuing in college. This is the first opportunity I've had to see a concept go from nuts and bolts all the way to flight. That's a huge deal, especially being so early in my career."
