Jesse Harvey Johnson, Jr.

July 9, 1939 ~ October 15, 2020 (age 81)


Jesse was a fun loving Christian man. Whenever Jesse walked in a room, spirits always lifted, as he was the life of the party. Always showing how to fold his ears in, making whistling noises or showing off his yoyo skills.

   Being a good Christian and loved to read his Bible daily. He attended church regularly and praised God faithfully.

   Dancing with all those in heaven since he’s not in his old earthly body.
   Jesse was in the Air Force for four years. He was in the kitchen peeling potatoes for all the men serving with him.

   Being a devoted family man, he took on a ready-made family and raised two children that wasn’t his own. He was married 53 wonderful years to his current wife.

   He loved the outdoors as he would stay out in the yard after work, on his days off and even when it’s cold outside.
He was tough even surviving a brain tumor in 2005, God truly blessed him beyond belief.

He will be missed by all of us and we know he is in a better place with other loved ones.

He is survived by his wife, Deana Johnson; one daughter, Hettie Ackerman and husband Len; one son, Mark Anderson and wife JoAnn; four grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; and one brother, Bill Johnson.
