It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of our beloved tutor Jim Johnson on 7/23/2019. Jim was with us for over a decade and he will be missed by all.
James Johnson, loving father and teacher, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday July 23rd at the age of 56. Jim was born in Chicago on December 5, 1962 and moved to the Bronx in 1985 where he taught for over 33 years.
Jim is survived by his loving daughters, Allison Johnson and Olivia Johnson. His brothers, Robert (Luba) Johnson and Michael (Jeanmarie) Johnson. His nieces and nephews, Christine (Great Uncle to Graham, Scott and Rebecca), Katie and Jeffrey. His cousin David (Janice) Sedlak. Jim was predeceased by his parents Arthur and Suzanne Johnson, and his siblings Audrey Johnson and Jeffrey Johnson.
Jim will be deeply missed by his family and all who knew him. At the request of his daughters, there will only be a small private family service.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.
