It is the mission of the Jane Johnson Foundation to support access to creative and stimulating educational environments for students with
significant medical, orthopedic and cognitive disabilities. It is our belief that all students will thrive when given the right environment, educational
practices and a community that cares.
Driven by her acute sense of need for improvement of the education of those with learning differences, she was an ardent participator in the Dyslexia Association. She joined the Board of the San Diego Council on Literacy, and shortly thereafter took over as its President. Jane also served on advisory boards to the Department of Education at SDSU and USD with the goal of helping teachers with the broad range of their students.
In 2005 Jane lost her battle with Lou Gehrig's Disease but not without leaving a lasting impression on all that knew her. Just as her passion made a positive impact in the past, she continues to change the lives of children she never met through “Jane’s Rooms”. Children whose medical problems and disabilities limit their possibilities have been given a chance to learn and have fun!
The members of the Jane Johnson Foundation are honored to continue to work in reflection of Jane’s love of children and the community.
