Jamey and Cynthia Johnson
Elder Jay Johnson and his wife Sister Cynthia Johnson live in University Place, Washington – about 35 miles south of Seattle. They have three kids, all of whom still live at home. The oldest (a girl), Ollie just turned 21. Their next is Jonathon who is 15 and is very interested in the military and is very involved in ROTC in his school. The youngest, Jerry, is 13 and he is a joy. Sister Johnson, Ollie, Jonathan, and Jerry are all from Fiji but have lived in the states for almost 3 years now. They still have a home in Fiji
Elder Johnson has served numerous callings in the church from ward missionary to callings in the primary and young men. He also served a full-time mission to Mexico – the Tampico Mission and also in the Monterrey North Mission. Sister Johnson is a convert and has served in many callings teaching teens and children since her baptism in 2014.
Elder Johnson has been in law enforcement for many years and is currently a private security officer for a local hospital protecting the staff and other patients from combative patients and people that come into the hospital, which happens every day. Sister Johnson also works in a hospital in nursing.
The whole family is avid outdoors people. They go hiking and camping all the time. Most of the time it has to be by a body of water. The kids, being from an island, love to play in the water. They love nature and everything that is involved. They practice outdoor survival skills and consider themselves to be the Polynesian version of Lewis and Clark trying to explore everywhere when time and money allow.
