Evans Funeral Home announces the death of Mr. John Jarrard Johnson, age 46 of Jefferson, Georgia who went to be with our Lord, Tuesday, October 26, 2021. John was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1998. John was a member of the Galilee Christian Church. He was a Project Manager with the Southern Company.
John was a dedicated family man. His family was his life. He was a devoted husband and father. Much of his free time was spent coaching football with the Jefferson Recreation Department, and he loved every minute of it. John also had a big heart for dogs. He enjoyed relaxing with his two Havanese- Gillian and Killer.
Another activity he enjoyed with family was UGA football. John was an avid fan and attended almost every home game for over 25 years.
Survivors include his wife Wendy Lee Johnson of Jefferson. Son, John Jarrard “Jack” Johnson Jr. of Jefferson. Step-son, James Mackinley “Mack” Allen of Lawrencville, step-daughter, Hazel Jane Allen of Jefferson. His sweet Grandmother, Allie Jarrard of Loganville and Uncle and Aunt, Tom and Denise Jarrard of Stone Mountain, of whom all raised him as their own. His cousins Kathy Smith, Andy Allen, Trey Jarrard, and Julie McKinzey. Although they are listed as cousins, to John they were simply his brothers and sisters.
Memorial services will be held 6:30 P.M., Thursday, November 4, 2021 from the Galilee Christian Church with Minister Nick Vipperman officiating. The family will receive friends at the Church prior to the service, 5:30 – 6:30 P.M. This service has been scheduled for Thursday because the Dawgs will be playing on Saturday and as the dedicated fan that he was, John would have been very upset if we planned his service during a Georgia football game.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in memory of Mr. John Jarrard Johnson to the Children’s Health Care of Atlanta Foundation, 1575 Northeast Expressway, Atlanta, Georgia 30329 or at www.give.choa.org
