Jerry Johnston Creative Arts Memorial Fund
…a Mission Waco opportunity for lower income children and teens Jerry Johnston loved the arts and the poor. His life showed it. While he played and enjoyed music sitting on the board among the elite in the Dallas Opera Company, he also remembered the poor wherever he lived or traveled, creating a home for homeless boys in Bogota, Colombia, serving though NYC’s City Harvest hunger ministry, and even visiting inmates in the jail ministry with his church. As a local Waco resident with two Baylor University business degrees and post graduate studies at Duke, he succeeded in the business world in banking and became one the Top 20 Young Businessmen of Dallas. At age 57, his earthly struggles ended.
