Our son was a promising high school sophomore at Lowndes High School located in Valdosta, GA. On January 10, 2013, Kendrick's life was tragically cut short when he was discovered dead in a rolled-up gym mat, under highly suspicious circumstances. A subsequent autopsy conducted by our forensic pathologist subsequently confirmed our worst nightmare that our son’s death was no accident. Kendrick died as a result of blunt force trauma to his person. As parents our hearts are broken, but we are determined to prevent a tragedy of this magnitude from occurring again.
As we continue to our fight for justice, we choose to honor Kendrick by doing what he loved to do the most, helping others. We ask for your continued support in donating to this fund, which will benefit the Kendrick Johnson Foundation 's mission to raise awareness on the need for increased supervision and safety within our public schools.
We thank you in advance for standing with our family,
Kenneth and Jacquelyn Johnson
The Parents of Kendrick “KJ” Johnson
