John Stupp III
John III is our fearless leader, paving the way for Stupp’s first organic business venture since 1856. Even though he and his wife Catherine had their first baby in 2022, he calls Stupp Fiber his “other baby,” and he can’t wait to bring his dream to life by offering the ultimate internet experience to every resident in Bowling Green. Fun fact: John’s need for speed extends beyond lightning-fast broadband. He’s also a former competitive drag racer! When he’s not overseeing the construction and operation of one of the fastest residential fiber networks in the country, he can be found in his garage, tuning up his personal vehicles to get an adrenaline rush.

Joe knows exactly what it takes to build a successful broadband network from scratch. After serving in the Army during the Gulf War and earning his degree at the University of Kentucky, he returned to Grayson County and created an Internet Service Provider (ISP) by setting up his first set of modems in his two-bedroom apartment. Joe went on to found Kentucky Telephone Company which brought Grayson County its first high-speed broadband service, delivering internet to residential customers as well as commercial accounts and government agencies. Joe and his wife DeLana still own the company, with DeLana leading day-to-day operations. Ready for a new challenge, Joe joined Stupp Bridge Company as a Project Manager and Business Systems Analyst before bringing his expertise to the Stupp Fiber project. When he’s not hard at work constructing the network, Joe enjoys spending time with his family, flying his plane, and digging in the Florida sand with his dog Luna.

After spending fifteen years in the energy industry, Beth is diving headfirst into the world of broadband—and loving it! Working from home post-COVID taught her just how life changing reliable internet is, and she wants to see everyone in Bowling Green have that same option. While Beth may not understand all the technical complexities of the network, her competitive nature pushes her to research every ISP in the market to ensure Stupp Fiber customers have the ultimate internet experience at the best possible value. When she isn’t staring at color swatches or working on a PowerPoint deck, Beth can probably be found at OrangeTheory, run-to-rowing her heart out (IFYKYK); at home, smoking ribs on the Big Green Egg with her husband Clay; or managing the busy social calendar of Penny, their golden retriever puppy.

Emira, affectionately known as the Fiber Queen, immigrated to the U.S. with her family in 2000 and has been a Bowling Green resident ever since.
