Jared Anthony Johnson

Johnson_JaredJared Anthony Johnson, 24, of Medina, passed away Tuesday, September 2, 2014. Jared was born June 23, 1990 in Medina.

He was a truck driver for World Truck and worked at Dominic’s Italian Restaurant for many years. He brought laughter, warmth, and comfort to many and in the moments when his mother, father, sister, brother, and the many others showed despair, Jared provided a noble message of hope and promise- in his unfailing conviction that his life here may be limited but by no means final.

Jared is survived by his loving parents, James A. Johnson and Denise (Calendine) Johnson; paternal grandparents, Reverend Mr. Joe and Joan Johnson; maternal grandmother, Therese Chaumont; brother, Jeremy (Toni) Johnson; sister, Jaime Johnson; nephews, Rylee and Bryce Johnson, and niece, Ava Johnson; many aunts, uncles and cousins; his faithful companion, Chloe and host of friends from Dominic’s and World Truck.

Services will be held 5 P.M., Saturday, September 6, 2014, at Waite & Son Funeral Home, 765 N. Court St., Medina 44256. Deacon Dan Norris will officiate. The family will receive friends from 1 until 5 P.M., Saturday before the funeral at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Johnson family in care of the funeral home.

    Jared you fought such a courageous battle. It seems surreal and I keep expecting to see you, but I know you’re at peace. I will miss our chats. Our hearts go out to the Johnson family.
