Tim Johnson II Meet Tim Johnson II, **President of Tim Johnson Landscaping (TJL)**, from Statesville, North Carolina. Tim's entrepreneurial journey started at just 12 years old when he learned the importance of hard work. Wanting to drive at 16, he began mowing lawns, laying the foundation for TJL. Tim's academic and athletic pursuits led him to NC A&T, where he found a love for turf and horticulture. Armed with a degree in **Environmental Horticulture** and a certificate in **Entrepreneurship**, Tim returned from a brief stint in the Colorado Rockies organization in 2009 to join forces with his father. Together, they transformed TJL from a small, part-time venture into a thriving landscaping and horticulture business. Outside of the office, Tim is a devoted family man, with a loving wife, Jenni, and two adorable children, Eleanor and Tim III (TJ). His passions extend beyond the business realm, encompassing family, church, baseball, landscaping, gardening, classic cars, travel, and business. A typical day at TJL for Tim is dynamic, with tasks ranging from overseeing site visits, checking on crews, and visiting customers to collaborating with the operations and admin team. **His favorite aspect of Tim Johnson Landscaping? The people—team members, clients, and partners.** Tim Johnson Sr. Tim Johnson Sr, Chairman at Tim Johnson Landscaping (TJL), brings over two decades of experience to the company. Raised in the fertilizer business, Tim developed a strong work ethic early on, spending countless hours maintaining his mother's yard. With a successful 19-year career in Corporate America, where he achieved the remarkable feat of being the #1 salesperson among 8,000 employees, Tim transitioned to his true passion over 24 years ago—landscaping. A typical day for Tim involves three distinct phases: a morning kick-off, mid-day focus on sales and business, and a careful close to ensure everyone returns safely. His favorite aspect of TJL is witnessing the growth of the employees. Outside of work, Tim enjoys collecting and spending quality time with his family—his wife Joyce, daughters Angela and Vanessa, and son Tim II, whom he's immensely proud of. His weekends are often dedicated to leisurely rides and the exploration of different types of Bourbon. Tim holds a 2-year college degree and is a licensed landscape contractor, reflecting his commitment to professionalism and expertise in the field. The best advice he ever received was to wait 24 hours before addressing a concern, emphasizing the importance of thoughtful communication. Tim Johnson Sr is not just a leader at TJL but a dedicated family man with a deep appreciation for the simple joys in life.
