Tennessee State Senator Jack Johnson
State Legislative Update

Jack Johnson grew up in a small town in Texas, but has proudly called middle Tennessee
“home” since graduating from Texas State University with a degree in Education.
Jack and his wife Deanna, the Circuit Court Judge for the 21st Judicial District, are raising their
three children in Franklin. Jack and Deanna met over 30 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 was first elected to the Tennessee State Senate in 2006. He was proud to cast his first vote
in the Senate for the first Republican Lieutenant Governor in 140 years. After only two years,
he was appointed as Chairman of the Government Operations Committee. A year later, he was
named Chairman of the Commerce and Labor Committee. He served as Commerce Committee
Chairman for nine years until December of 2018, when he was elected by his Republican
colleagues as the Senate Majority Leader.
Jack Johnson has over 20 years of hands-on experience in the financial industry, beginning his
career with Third National Bank (now SunTrust). Over the last few years, Jack worked as the
Vice President of Public Affairs for an internet start-up company based in Brentwood. More
recently, Jack serves as the Senior Vice President for Studio Bank in the Cool Springs area.
Senator Johnson proudly represents the 23rd District, soon to be the 27 th District, which
includes most of Williamson County. When the day’s work is done, Jack enjoys spending time
with his family, playing guitar, and piloting private aircraft.
