Jonas Johnson passed away earlier this year. He was a smiling spirit at Chris King and was loved by many in the industry.

  • I didn’t get to know Jonas well, but the few short interactions I had with him made an impression on me. He was funny and positive and came off as being stoked about everything about life, even with the health issues he was going through at the time. I was saddened to hear he had passed and feel for his family and the Chris King group. Here’s hoping they raise good money for his wife and kids.
