While in college, Jeffrey Scott Johnson, born and raised in the Bay Area, had a life-changing opportunity to study in Europe. While abroad his interest in international business was piqued, leading him to pursue a degree in business administration from San Josè State University. From that time on his passion for business and travel became the foundation for his personal and professional life as Jeff spent his career in international trade and traveled the world. Jeff’s mother endowed this scholarship in honor of her son’s legacy, ensuring that students at San Josè State University would also have the same life-changing opportunity to travel the world as Jeff did.
