What's the DISH?

Join us each month as we highlight and celebrate the JA Team favorites! Take the opportunity to learn just a little more about how each of us creates our own JA Magic and about our personalities as we share our favorite recipes, hobbies, and local restaurants - from our family to yours.

For this month’s Dish is featuring Chris Johnson, Partner, Chairman, and CEO here at JA Benefits.

Chris joined JA full-time in May of 2004 and has served the firm in many roles, including customer service, large group account management, agency operations, and consulting. He and his wife, Becky, reside in Lawrence County. They have three children named Finley, Fallyn, and Foster. They enjoy spending as much quality time together as possible, as well as participating in a wide range of outdoor activities.

Chris's JA Magic

Chris’s favorite meal to enjoy is Saturday morning breakfast on the outdoor griddles – pancakes, bacon, eggs and local, roasted coffee!

How to make it:

“There’s no directions needed! Just round up the youngest cooks in your household, let them whip up the pancake batter, and together make some awesome Mickey Mouse pancakes!”

Instead of going out to any particular restaurant, Chris prefers to take a 20-minute boat ride out to a small, family-owned marina (East Port Marina), where he and his family can pick out their favorite ice cream treat. Then, treats in hand, they love to take a slow cruise back home as the sun sets in the Tennessee hills.
