John Timothy Dunlap, Prince Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta was born in 1957 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Ottawa and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Western Ontario.

Dunlap was admitted to the New York State Bar Association and the Ontario Bar Association. In 1986, he joined the New York legal firm Dunnington, Bartholow & Miller. He became a partner in 1993. He specializes in corporate and immigration law. He was a legal advisor to the Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations.

On May 3, 2023, at age 66, Fra’ John Dunlap was elected and sworn in for ten years as Prince and 81st Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. Dunlap's election was made possible by the 2022 revisions to the Order's constitution ordered by His Holiness Pope Francis, which removed the traditional requirement that the Grand Master be able to prove noble ancestry.

For further information see his other entry as the Grand Master of the Order of Malta.
