Honoring Officer Michael Johnson

I've been a volunteer for 18 years at SJPD and I have met so many wonderful people during my time there. One of them was Michael Johnson. He was always so nice, kind hearted and considerate of others. Whenever I saw him, he would have a smile and a hug. He was so happy to be a police officer, serving the San Jose community with such professionalism and kindness.

To say he will be missed is truly an understatement. I met him 15 years ago when he and Jeff Fontana were taking their final academy scenario testing. My job was to be a domestic violence victim for that testing and along with my officer "husband", we had to behave very badly in front of these cadets. Mike asked me a few years later after he was hired where we came up with such bad behavior and language and I told him that it was my inner actress talent! He used to call me the "Domestic Violence Victim from Hell" and I loved it!

My thoughts and prayers will always be with Mike, his family, friends and colleagues at the San Jose Police Department. We lost one of the great ones on March 24th and I will never forget our friendship.
