‘Proud to Be a Christian’: Read This Poignant Statement From Family of Student Killed in Oregon Shooting

The family of one of the students killed in the Oregon shooting released a statement Friday, remembering their loved one as a proud Christian who had “finally found his path.”

The statement was read by a law-enforcement official during an afternoon news conference.

“Jason Johnson, age 34, was proud to be a Christian,” it said. “Jason recently enrolled in school at Umpqua Community College. Jason’s mother said that Jason was proud of himself for enrolling in school, and so was his mom. They felt that Jason had finally found his path. His family says that he will be loved and missed.”

Jason kissed his mom and said “I’ll see you this afternoon” before he left for class. He was one of the nine victims.
