Michael Fisher Johnson passed away January 3, 2019 at the age of 43.

Born on August 25, 1975 in Seattle, Mike graduated from Washington State University and went on to earn his Juris Doctor from the College of Law at Willamette University. Mike was a talented lawyer who started his career in Seattle followed by several years at the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C. He moved to Greenville to practice law at Nelson Mullins. He was profiled as a “Who’s Who One to Watch” by the Upstate Business Journal in 2015 due to his work in securities and emerging growth companies. Professionally, Mike was particularly interested in private equity and entrepreneurship. He enjoyed playing golf and tennis, rooting for Washington State University athletics, watching movies, and playing with his sweet dachshund, Lucy. Most importantly, Mike was a proud, loving father who had no greater joy than spending time with his young son.

Mike will be dearly missed and remembered with love by his wife, Rachel Johnson; his 3-year-old son, William Furie Johnson; his father, Howard “Bud” Johnson, and Howard’s wife, Helen; his mother, Maxine Clark, and Maxine’s husband, Mark; his brother, Tim Johnson (Stephany); his stepsisters: Christi Clark (Ivan Mendoza), Rebecca Nicholson (Kenneth), and Amanda Alexander (Nathan); his stepbrothers, Nicholas Thomas and Brian Clark; and many nieces and nephews.

I am so sorry.

I knew Mike from the SEC. We worked together for a few years in the Banking group. He did a great job at keeping in touch in the early years.

I loved having conversations with Mike in the office. He was dynamic, smart and caring. I remember when he was so excited to share that he had proposed to his wife. Mike had a lovely personality and though I did not ultimately keep in touch with him, I will miss him. I feel like the world will miss him. Mike was a great guy in so many ways.

Please know that Mike will always be remembered in all of the hearts he touched. He made a difference. He was not an ordinary person. He was special.

Warmly,
Babette Cooper

I was lucky enough to know Mike through my son Mike Jacobsen when the boys went to Eastside Catholic High. Mike was always super polite and always had a big smile. They loved it when Maxine would take them to Breakfast at Chase’s Pancake Grill on Bellevue Way.
Mike was always so respectful of family. He will be missed by our family.
Love, Candy
