Cisco Designated VIP (2014)
Jay Johnson retired from 20 years service in the U.S. Air Force as a senior manager (E-7) from the communications career field. During this time, he earned the Air Force rated "Network" prefix (“N”) for continued demonstration of excellence regarding his network skillset.
Over this 20 year period of service (Nov 1990 – Feb 2011), he was not only fortunate enough to see the beginnings of technological advances that have become a staple in today’s society, (i.e., open internet access, electronic communication/storage/records management), but to have also played a part in their implementation on the Air Force network during various parts of his active duty service time.
After just recently leaving from a 2 year stint as an Information Assurance Network Manager following retirement (and a few months working “Cloud Technology”), he is now employed as an IT manager in his current company with responsibilities for maintaining data and voice operations.
Currently, he holds Cisco certifications for CCNA (Voice, R&S, Security), CCDA, CCNP (R&S), and CompTIA (Network+, Server+, Security+, I.T. Project+). Additionally, he holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Psychology.
Congratulations Jay and thank you for your contributions to our community!
