BTFC Secretary Eddie Johnson

Eddie Johnson has lived in the metropolitan Atlanta area since 1999 by way of Orlando, Fl; Tampa, Fl; and Beltsville, MD. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, he attended Florida State University where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting in 1994. Eddie is employed with Ferguson Enterprises as an Area Credit Manager.

Eddie is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. and has served as the Treasurer for two different Alumni Chapters. Currently, he sits on the Board of Directors for the Alpharetta-Smyrna Alumni Chapter and serves on various committees. Eddie is an active member of Antioch Roswell Mission and serves as the Chairman of the Finance Committee and a member of the choir.

Eddie’s inspiration for joining the Board of Directors for the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children came from his late son Kendall Alexander Johnson. On July 17, 2003 Kendall was diagnosed with a Brain Stem Glioma, one of the most aggressive tumors found in children. For nine months Kendall fought his illness with a spirit of happiness and love for those around him. Because of the love Kendall showed others and the smile that he kept, Eddie has committed himself to helping others who are experiencing the same walk of hope.

Eddie is a very strong believer that many of us are blessed in various ways so that we can be a blessing to others. He is married to Treza Brooms-Johnson and they have been blessed since 2004 with three children: daughter Kennedy and twin boys Christian and Cameron.
