Senator Jack Johnson

Jack Johnson

Jack Johnson grew up in a small town, raised to understand the importance of family and the honor found in a hard day’s work, to preserve, protect and respect our freedoms, both for ourselves and others, and to take pride in a community that remembers its past, works in the present and focuses on the future.

Jack Johnson has proudly called middle Tennessee “home” since graduating from Texas State University with a degree in education.

Jack Johnson and his wife Deanna, Circuit Court Judge for the 21st District, are raising their three children in Leiper’s Fork, where they attend Grace Chapel Church.  Jack and Deanna met over 20 years ago at a Young Republican function, sharing the same conservative values and the same dream of a future filled with faith and family.

Jack Johnson has over 20 years of hands-on experience in the financial industry, beginning his career with Third National Bank (now SunTrust) as well as working in the asset management division of Pinnacle Financial Partners.  Currently he and his wife are small business owners in Leiper’s Fork, where he serves as company CEO.

As our State Senator, Jack Johnson proudly represents the 23rd District which includes all of Williamson County.  When the day’s work is done, Jack enjoys spending time with his family, playing guitar, and flying.
