Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon is a lifelong resident of Pennsylvania with deep roots and history in the Commonwealth. Her grandmother, Carmella Fizzano (née Carzo) settled in McKees Rocks, just outside of Pittsburgh, when her family immigrated from Italy to this country in the early part of the 20th century. Her grandfather, Joseph Fizzano, settled with his family in Leiperville in Southeastern Pennsylvania. He and his brothers started a family business, Fizzano Brothers Concrete Products. This business has been in continuous operation since 1935.
Judge Fizzano Cannon’s career in law was inspired by her maternal grandfather, Samuel Myers, who was dedicated to the pursuit of justice as a police officer and as the first Chief of Police of Folcroft Borough. She has great respect for men and women who serve our communities as first responders and maintains excellent professional relationships with law enforcement and emergency service organizations.
Judge Fizzano Cannon has been married for 22 years and has identical twin sons and a daughter. Her husband, Mark, owns a commercial masonry contracting company, Giles J. Cannon, Inc.
