Jeff is a member of the recovery community and is grateful for his 30 plus years of sobriety. His personal struggles with addiction and the miracles he has witnessed over the past 30 years have a real-time affect on his management philosophy and decision making. He is active in the recovery community and devotes several hours each week to giving back to others in need. Jeff actively works with other men seeking counsel to stem the tide of their personal addictions. He believes we are meant to serve rather than be served, and organizes his efforts accordingly.
His enthusiasms include traveling, golf, cinema, time with his family, writing, photography, and fellowship with others. He believes in the power of storytelling. He is a sought-after speaker and member of the speaking team at CrossTrainers (www.ctmen.org). He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Change Course (https://change-course.org/) and Brandon McNace Ministries. Below the surface Jeff has the mind of a businessman and the heart of an artist. His long term goal is to fit himself to be of maximum use to God and others.
On the surface Jeff Johnson is an accomplished CEO with over 23 years of experience running a successful 4th generation family business (www.jmworks.com).
