John DiFronzo (December 13, 1928 – May 27, 2018), nicknamed "No Nose", was an American mobster. He was the boss of the Chicago Outfit from 1997 until his death in 2018.[1] His brother, Peter DiFronzo, a made-man, was convicted of warehouse burglary in 1963.[2]

In 2009, John DiFronzo, Rudy Fratto, and several others were named in a civil lawsuit by Joseph Fosco, the son of late Teamsters treasurer Armando Fosco, alleged to have tried to extort $400,000 from Fosco.[3]

DiFronzo died in River Grove, Illinois on May 27, 2018 of complications from Alzheimer's disease at the age of 89.[4]
