Uncle John was the best friend I ever had; I'll miss him forever
Dr. Thomison was a ready source of information and an invaluable supporter during my years in the chairs at Southern Medical Association
We were so fortunate to visit with Dr. Thomison at Evie's 1st birthday party in October. His footprint will be highly regarded for the Thomison family and all that of the lives he touched.
I had the true honor and privilege to work as Dr. Thomison's assistant for several years in the early 1980s. He was truly inspirational in so many ways and taught me so much. I loved working on his editorials and continued to read them in the TMA and SMA Journals for many years after I left my position at AP. A great man who will be truly missed!
Dr. Thomison was the true leader within the Tennessee Medical Association. Not only did he produce our TMA Journal for decades, but he served as its president and represented Tennessee at the national level. He directly influenced the spirit and thoughts of Tennessee physicians through his editorials for so many years. The mark he left on Tennessee medicine is permanent, respected and will always be remembered. TMA will miss him dearly and will be forever mindful of the contributions he made to the profession. RIP JBT.
