John Shannon Simpson; Marines & Mickey valor thief updates

| March 8, 2018 | 36 Comments

About a year ago, we first wrote about John Shannon Simpson who founded the charity Marines & Mickey. His story was that he was a Recon Marine and drill instructor. He filched several thousand dollars from another charity, the Lance Corporal Skip Wells Foundation which caused them to go public about his dealings. Now he claims that he never made those claims about his service, according to Nooga;

Part of what got Cathy’s trust was Simpson’s assertion that he was a“Force Recon Marine.” Weeks compared that title to a Navy SEAL. Essentially, it’s a high ranking, he said.

Simpson said in a statement on his website that he never made that claim, but an old version of Simpson’s website reads, “Marines & Mickey began in May 2014, founded by John Simpson, a retired Marine who was a Recon Marine and also a Parris Island drill instructor.”

I wonder how he explains this polo shirt with Navy parachutist wings and a scuba bubble;

He was in fact a finance clerk who went AWOL according to his Marine Corps records and a local media article that reported his arrest on a military warrant;

He was subsequently the subject of a special court martial and discharged as a Private (E-1);

Simpson of course, continues to deny that this is the truth and he has threatened the Lance Corporal Skip Wells Foundation with a lawsuit;

Simpson said his funds helped send 14 families to Disney between July and February and that the organization is sending another family this week.

“They tried blackmail and extortion,” Simpson said. “I will be filing lawsuits against the Skip Wells Foundation [and] all of its board members.Also, we will be filing suits on two other foundations and several scum across the nation.”

He also said: “In short, I am doing great.I am a successful businessman and always will be.I am a very proud Marine.Our foundation is still going and will not stop.And I will also have a smile on my face once these morons receive their lawsuit papers.”

    Extra-special shitbag with cum-cream on top. This loser is actually suing the good decent people who called him out? I hope they rip him to shreds during discovery…

    I have a premonition that Bubba, Thor, et al, will be the ones having smiles on their faces, because they can rest ashtrays on his square head.

  7. E4 Mafia For Life. says:

    He earned his chairborne wings after falling out of his seat and opening his lips as he sucked the ground.
    I won’t say what the bubble was for…

  8. An Old Arty Sgt says:

    It’s all talk..Let the lawsuits fly. Get him in a courtroom and the judge will throw the book at him.. I would counter sue for fraud. Just show the judge his mugshot and his FOIA and his special court martial records.. What a loser..

    Straight from the tattered, dog-eared pages of the Official TAH Poser 101 Manual (quotes from the Nooga.com article linked above):

    ‘[…]

    Simpson’s response, accusations

    In response to questions from Nooga.com, Simpson confirmed that he met with Weeks, but said that he and “another white trash individual … started their blackmail and extortion scheme.”

    He said that Weeks wanted Simpson to give over his foundation but stay on as director. He also said that Weeks wanted all his funds and said that if he didn’t get them, he’d ruin Marines & Mickey.

    “I said, ‘Go ahead; my foundation and I have done nothing wrong,’” Simpson said via email. “So after I leave, the Weeks character gets on Facebook and starts a campaign of defamation and slander against me, which is fine; I could care less. But he and some of his low-IQ followers have sent death threats, etc., to my friends and family.”

    Simpson said his funds helped send 14 families to Disney between July and February and that the organization is sending another family this week.

    “They tried blackmail and extortion,” Simpson said. “I will be filing lawsuits against the Skip Wells Foundation [and] all of its board members. Also, we will be filing suits on two other foundations and several scum across the nation.”

    He also said: “In short, I am doing great. I am a successful businessman and always will be. I am a very proud Marine. Our foundation is still going and will not stop. And I will also have a smile on my face once these morons receive their lawsuit papers.”’

    https://www.independentmail.com/story/news/local/2017/01/03/federal-investigation-marines-mickey-founder-continues/95951344/

    BTW – the Marine Corps stated that JOHN SHANNON SIMPSON is a LIAR about his service!

  11. Atkron says:

    Is any Court Martial conviction considered a felony, or just a General Courts Martial?

  12. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    “After leaving the Marines, Simpson ran a burglar alarm business in Anderson. Numerous customers complained about the business and state officials suspended its license in 2012.”

    “Simpson misrepresented his military background when he approached Cathy Wells at her son’s funeral in Marietta, Georgia, according to Jason Weeks. Weeks is a former Marine who joined Cathy Wells in creating the nonprofit named after her son.”

    “Since March, there have been numerous media reports and posts on a Facebook page about Marines & Mickey removing money without authorization from the bank accounts of Marines.”

    What a Bernath!

  13. USAFRetired says:

    In less than 5 years he has two NJP and a special Courts Martial.

    That explains the lack of a GCM. I feel sorry for the company Commander who had to put up with this clown

  14. Graybeard says:

    For those wondering, whereas John Shannon Simpson was first outed on TAH in 2017, he will not be counted nor recorded in the 2018 TAH Stolen Valor Phony Race.

    It does not make him any less of a waste of protoplasm, however.

  15. Ex-PH2 says:

    Utter scum. He should become a repoter for the Leftred media. He’d fit right in.

  16. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    So his MOS was PRISONER …

  17. 3E9 says:

    Looks like this dipshit is from my home state; maybe I can run into him somewhere.

  18. Guard Bum says:

    I have a particular loathing for disbursing clerks even without the stolen valor ….fuck this guy.

  19. My, My, My says:

    I am no lawyer, that is for sure. That said, curious: on the 2nd to last page of CM document is says (under action) it states that Sentence is approved and, except for bad conduct discharge, will be executed……

    So did he get the BCG or not. Perhaps I am just misunderstanding what it is stating….

  20. Thunderstixx says:

    The domain name is up for sale and the real owner want’s $777.00 bucks for it…
    HA !!!!!
    I offered $7.77 for the domain name.
    If I get it, I’ll donate it to the Lance Corporal Skip Wells Foundation to do with as they please.
    Go piss up a rope asswipe.

  21. Mark Lauer says:

    “I’m gonna sue! I’m gonna sue everyone! I’m gonna sue the morons, and the ass wipes, and the scum! My lawyer’s name is Bernath, and he knows h—…he what?”

  22. Howdareyou says:

    My family was personally impacted and preyed upon by this man. He needs to be held accountable.
