John Hargensen is the father of Chris Hargensen, and a character in Carrie.


He tries to make sure that Chris Hargensen goes to the Prom. However, he fails, because of Chris' actions and because of Mr. Grayle's determination to make her pay for her role in Carrie's humiliation and for everything she has done during her presence in the school.
