Johnson, Jack G. Jr.

Jack G. Johnson, Jr., 50, of Howards Grove, passed away Saturday, July 23, 2016 at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee. Jack was born April 21, 1966, in Plymouth, to Jack G. Johnson, Sr. and the late Priscilla (Kohlmann) Johnson. Jack served his country in the United States Army from 1987 until 1993, where he served in the Military Police and was stationed in Germany. He was activated during the Gulf War, serving as a heavy artillery instructor. After his time in the military, he graduated from Lakeshore Technical College with an Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice. On October 27, 1990, he married the former Kristi Thiel. Together, they had one daughter, Courtney. On October 9, 1998, he married the former Paula Fronek in Sheboygan. Together, they had one daughter, Erika.

On June 1, 2016, Jack retired after 23 years of service with the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Department as a correctional officer. During his career, Jack wore many hats. He was a field training officer, a mentor to many people, a CPR instructor for the department and a veteran's court officer. He was an active member of the Howards Grove Fire Department and the Sheboygan Noon Lions Club. Recently, he was awarded a life-time membership award for ten years with the Wisconsin Field Training Officer's Association. Jack was also the president of the Sheboygan County Law Enforcement Association. A recent highlight of his career was stepping in as Santa Claus for SCLEA Shop With a Cop.

Jack enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He was extremely proud of his daughters, "Kiddo" and "Bean" and their accomplishments. Before he passed, he was able to witness Erika graduate from high school and Courtney exchange spiritual vows with her future husband, Aaron James. He also enjoyed duck hunting with his longtime friend, Val, bowling on various teams, trap shooting and deer hunting with his father and Eric, John and Curtis. Recently, Jack had the privilege of going to North Dakota on a duck hunt with his very good friends.

In addition to his father, wife and daughters, he is survived by three brothers, Robert Johnson, Theodore (Sharon) Johnson and Marcus (Anna) Johnson; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Paul and Nancy Fronek and his Godchildren, Kimberly Johnson and James Johnson. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, two nieces, Alexandra and Chloe Fick and one nephew, Spencer Fick.

I am so very sorry to hear about Jack's passing. He was a good man and I considered him a friend. I am very happy to have had the opportunity to work with him during my 5 years in Sheboygan and I will never forget our deer hunting trip "up nort." We came back without a deer but I'll have the memories for the rest of my life. Good times my friend. Rest in peace.

I heard the sad news while away at scout camp with Troop 825 from Howards Grove, we got back to town Saturday and all the scouts saw that the fire trucks were out of the station and cars were parked all along the road. I told them that an Eagle Scout had passed away. Also that he was also a Soldier, Firefighter, and County Sheriff's Deputy. They were all touched to see how the community turn out with a large crowd.

I'll miss you Jack, I'll always remember 20+ years together selling brats at the HGFD bratfry...

I had the privilege of attending the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Department Citizen's Academy a few years back. Jack was the Officer I shadowed at the Detention Center. Jack was down to earth kind of man and nobody messed with him. I salute you Jack.

Jack was a great guy. I met him at the Sheriff Dept many years ago as well as his wife Paula. He was always an anxious guy to get involved in social events. He was always happy when I saw him. His picture is a true portrayal of what he was about. I am truly surprised that he passed at such a young age. Condolences to all of his family. God truly has a good person by his side.

I knew Jack since we were in Waldo grade school together and Cub scouts. He always had a smile on his face and was always there to help people. After graduation we both went our separate ways, but I always remembered the great times we had together. The world has lost an awesome person and a good Man. So sorry to hear of Jacks Passing. My Family and I send heartfelt condolences. Hope to see you again in Heaven Jack; you will be missed.

My deepest sympathy to Paula, his daughters, family & friends. I first met Jack when I worked at the Kohler Credit Union in Howards Grove back in 1994. Jack always came in with a smile on his face & a story to tell. I got to know Jack better when he worked at the Sheriff's Dept & worked & bowled with my ex. Jack will always be remembered as the guy who would do anything for anyone. May the memories you have of him help you heal during this very difficult time. My prayers are with all of you!

Jack was a very inclusive and good man. Not knowing my wife or I, he sat with us and talked like we were old friends after the 2014 shop with a cop. A warm heart that will be remembered. - Tom and Steph Aker
