WOW! Where do we start with learning about Jennifer Johnson? How about her growing up in Lake Jackson, Texas, Seoul, Korea, Midland, Michigan and Miami, Florida? The interesting point is that Jennifer, a native Houstonian, was born in Houston at Baptist Hospital, but her early education took place in all the previous geographical places. It all culminated in completing her higher education at Florida State University, Florida International University and at New York University.
Beginning with a BA in Liberal Arts degree, Jennifer saw television beckoning and met that urge by becoming an intern at NBC in New York. This was a stint that was to last 20 years. Fresh from the glamour of TV, she embarked on corporate marketing positions in Atlanta, Dallas and finally in Houston. Her return to Houston in 2007 resulted in a job opportunity, and an even more important event – meeting her “sweet husband!”
A recognition of the mid-century mark compelled Jennifer to change her focus to Houston real estate. Today she is a Real Estate Agent and owner of JLJohnson Properties. Beginning at ground level, she needed contacts and solicited referrals. On joining the Chamber, she realized the beginning of a terrific relationship. According to Jennifer, “I was looking for a place to network, but in reality I found an organization that is full of wonderful supportive, fun people. The Chamber is full of people who really care about one another’s success and well-being.” Contributing to her success included memberships in the Greater Houston Partnership and the Women Helping Women 2 Network.
Amid all these impressive credentials, Jennifer is an excellent cook and loves hosting parties. Most impressive is her completion of a half marathon in January and the training for two more. Rounding out her endeavors calls for playing fun tennis and learning how to sew. She proudly remembers meeting Mark Salinas on eHarmony, and they will celebrate their 10th anniversary this summer!
We are humbled by her accomplishments and proud to have her as a valued Chamber member. She “dove in with both feet,” and generously serves as a member of various committees. Jennifer is outgoing, professional, and a person fellow members will like to know.
