James and Brenda Johnson (James's Parents)

In honor of James Johnson lll

My life is forever changed, and I am heartbroken. I am missing a huge piece of myself. James was our only son; he was a father of six kids whom I watch suffer everyday. It is so hard and heartbreaking — more than I can say. James has two sisters who miss their brother so deeply and two nephews — one is 11 and cries a lot for his uncle, and one James never even got a chance to meet. James was engaged to be married. James wasn’t perfect, but he helped a lot of people and would go out of his way to help everyone he could. He has touched many lives and is missed so deeply.

He was born on November 12, 1990, and murdered on October 20, 2020 (unsolved, unarmed), at a Sunoco gas station in Columbus Ohio . James will forever be missed. Forever29.
