ACI-NA Saddened on Passing of Rosie L.T.P. Johnson

The ACI-NA Commissioners Committee and ACI-NA staff are saddened to learn of the death of our esteemed colleague, Rosie L.T.P. Johnson, Ph.D. The contributions Dr. Johnson made to the ACI-NA Commissioners Committee and the airport community as a whole are numerous and we will miss her dedicated, effervescent, and collegial spirit. 

In 2014, the former City of Jackson Mayor, Tony Yarber, appointed Dr. Johnson to serve on the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority (JMAA) Board of Commissioners. During her board tenure, Dr. Johnson served as Board Chair in 2015 and was elected Board Vice-Chair in 2016. Following her appointment to the Board, she also immediately became affiliated with the ACI-NA Commissioners Committee.  In 2017, she was elected to serve on the Commissioners Executive Committee and Steering Committee.

We extend our sincere condolences to her family, colleagues, friends, and the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority. Commissioner Johnson was an invaluable resource to the ACI-NA Commissioners Committee and always willing to serve; we will miss her dedication to our industry.
