It is with great sadness that the family of Jackie Eugene Johnson announces his passing at the age of 80.
Jackie died on Monday, August 9, 2021 after a short battle with cancer. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.
Jackie was born July 28, 1941, in Crossett, Arkansas to Tommie and Mattie Johnson. He moved to Portland as a baby in 1943, when his parents came to work in the shipyards during WWII. He lived with his family in Vanport, Oregon until the flood of 1948. They then moved to NE Portland where he remained the rest of his life.

Logan of Portland, Oregon; 11 grandchildren, 15 Great-grandchildren, as well as many Nieces,
