John Joseph Gotti, Sr. and his wife Victoria DiGiorgio Gotti reared John Gotti, Jr. and his four siblings in the Italian neighborhood of Howard Beach, Queens. His father was a gangster and the Gambino crime family’s boss. John attended the New York Military Academy in Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, but did not complete his study since he left to start the family trucking company, the Samson Trucking Company. However, the firm eventually collapsed, and he began to rise through the ranks of the Carpenters Union, but it wasn’t long before he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and join the criminal underworld.
John began his ‘career’ in 1988, when he joined the Gambino crime family. Gradually, he advanced, and two years later, he was named the family’s caporegime, which became the main source of his net wealth in the years to come. Since his father was condemned to life in prison in 1992, John was the family’s employer until 1999. Gotti became more cautious about his operations after his father was imprisoned, and he partnered with family members he trusted. After several years of apparently mainly inept rule, John was arrested and sentenced to 77 months in prison on several counts of racketeering; however, he pleaded guilty, and the charges were reduced to loansharking, extortion, and bookmaking. He was released in 2004, but allegedly never returned to organized crime, despite the fact that three new prosecutions against him were initiated, all of which resulted in mistrials.
To talk of his achievements, John became the Gambino family’s youngest caporegime, although he was deemed incompetent by numerous other mafia families, including the Genovese family, who felt it was best not to work with him. His uncle Peter took over the family’s ‘company’ when he was convicted. John is thought to have worked closely with the FBI on a number of mafia-related investigations.
A number of producers were interested in filming a film on John’s life, named “Gotti: under the Shadow of My Father” and directed by Joe Johnston, in addition to his criminal career.
n terms of his personal life, John Gotti, Jr. has been married to Kimberly Albanese, the daughter of another Gambino crime family gangster, Phillip Albanese, since 1990. The couple has six children and lives in Oyster Bay Cove on Long Island’s North Shore.
