Meet the Crew

DEREK CRAWFORD, Chief Pilot

A member of N1JR's piloting team, Derek Crawford manages and flies John Rosatti's Gulfstream GIV aircraft, based in Palm Beach, Florida.

A native of South Florida, Crawford always dreamed of becoming a pilot. He inherited his love of aviation from his grandfather, a former private pilot. Crawford's fondest childhood memories are of the times he spent flying with his beloved grandfather in his single engine Cessna 172 airplane.

After graduating from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Crawford went on to accomplish his lifetime goal of becoming a private pilot. For over 12 years, he has flown and managed first-class aircraft for travelers flying to pristine destinations around the world, including one of his favorite, Phuket, Thailand.

Currently, Crawford serves as the chief pilot of the N1JR, John Rosatti's private plane. Aside from flying, his hobbies include outdoor activities, such as playing golf and tennis. Crawford resides in West Palm Beach, FL, with his wife Cindy, a family law attorney, and their two sons, Reid and Grant, along with the family's pets, a Golden Retriever named Daisy and a Bull Mastiff named Gus.

CHRIS LUIS, Captain

Captain Chris Luis grew up in Fort Lauderdale and graduated from Fort Lauderdale High School, then went on to attend Broward College and achieved a Associates of Science in Aeronautical Science. Chris then attended Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and earned a Bachelor of Science with a Professional Aeronautics degree.

He has had a lifelong fascination with aviation and has wanted to be a pilot since early childhood. Chris took his first flight lesson at the age of 17 while a senior in high school. He earned his private license in 1991, then stepped away from flying for a while and began flying jets professionally in 2001.

Chris became a captain with N1JR in 2013 and enjoys flying with a team of great crew teammates. He currently lives in Pompano Beach, FL with his wife, Saemone, and 6 year old daughter, Eva. When not flying Chris can be found spending time with his family, boating, fishing, or on the golf course.

MARCIA MORRISSEY, Cabin Attendant

As a member of N1JR's flight crew since August 2012, Marcia Morrissey is responsible for providing comfort and safety to passengers on board John Rosatti's Gulfstream GIV aircraft, based in Palm Beach, Florida.

Born and raised in Wilson, North Carolina, Morrissey attended college in her native state. Graduating in 1998, Morrissey received a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications with a minor in English from Mount Olive College in Mount Olive, North Carolina.

In 2004, Morrissey began her career in the aviation industry, working for a small charter firm in North Carolina. She dedicated four years helping the organization grow from just two planes to an impressive fleet of over 50 aircrafts. During her tenure, Morrissey expanded her knowledge on charter sales and business development.

Moving to Florida in 2008, Morrissey pursued her passion for air transportation. She created her own business, JetForce International LLC, a company that offers world-class jet sales and leasing services.

When she's not busy tending to travelers on N1JR, Morrissey can be found outdoors playing golf or tennis, boating, fishing, and paddle boating. Morrissey currently resides in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, with the two special men in her life, her husband Joseph and their young son.

JAVIER REYES, Director of Maintenance

Director of Maintenance, Javier Reyes, grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. While pursuing his undergraduate degree in electronics, he attended a seminar on aeronautics. He was so fascinated by the presentation of the various airplanes that he changed the focus of his studies to aviation maintenance. Javier went on to graduate from the Pompano Academy of Aeronautics in South Florida.

Since then, he has been in aviation for 23 years. He was the Crew Chief of Maintenance for one of the largest business jet flight departments in South Florida. He was personally responsible for a Boeing Business Jet, a Boeing 737/200, Gulfstream IV's, Bell 430 helicopter, and multiple EC155 and EC 130 helicopters. He also has been working on Gulfstream aircraft for 9 years.

His favorite feature of the N1JR is that he finds it absolutely gorgeous and meticulously maintained. He is also very fond of the team he works for.

He currently lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with his wife of 17 years, Joann Reyes, and his son Christian. When he isn't living out his dream career, you can find him fishing, golfing, or cheering for his son at one of his baseball games.

Meet the Owner - John Rosatti

Born in 1945 to Edward John and Angeline Rosatti, and raised in Brooklyn, the young Rosatti was brought up with his Italian family's belief in working as hard as you're able to earn your living. Entering the workforce at the age of 11, John acquired his initial mechanical skills by helping his father work on boats, eventually using that same expertise to venture into the automobile industry in the years to come.

Through persistent hard work and a keen eye for opportunity, Rosatti purchased an Oldsmobile dealership in his early twenties and continued to nurture it for years with a hands-on management approach, actively overseeing every aspect of the dealership's business units. This career move into the automotive world, though a seemingly natural progression to him at the time, would come to mark the start of one of the nation's greatest success stories.
