Memorial Monday for Jennifer Johnson

A memorial will be held in honor of Jennifer “Jai Jai” Johnson on Monday in Frisco. Johnson was born on Feb. 25, 1967, and passed away on Aug. 19, 2005.As far as Johnson’s life in Summit County, what can we say? She went where she needed to be and helped out everyone who needed her. She was crucial to the development of Silly-cise and Funsical Fitness. Jai Jai’s more than 10-year commitment to this program helped to pave the path for its success as an international program where many children have received great benefits. It is really because of her that Silly-cise is now an international program and serving so many children throughout the U.S. and South Korea. She was and still is its soul. She was a true “Humangel,” a unique blessing to everyone who was fortunate enough to receive her. She was a bookkeeper, graphic designer, receptionist, secretary, free-spirit, moral, mental and spiritual adviser. You name it, she did it and did it well. She loved skiing, biking, hiking and all the mountain stuff, but most of all she was one of those very rare people whose true passion was to be of service to her fellow persons and animals. How can we encapsulate the essence of Jai Jai? She was a true princess and her light continues to shine every single day. Everyone is invited to a casual snowshoe at 2 p.m. at the Rainbow Lake trailhead. A reception will follow at 4 p.m. at 322 Forest Dr. in Frisco.- Daily News staff report
