We at the Department of Marketing at Montclair State University, New Jersey recently lost a great faculty colleague, Dr. Mark S. Johnson. Mark Johnson, 56 of North Brunswick, died suddenly Saturday February 24, 2007, in the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick.  Born in Midland, TX, Dr. Johnson grew up in Cheyenne, WY, and Boulder, CO. He lived and worked in Boulder, CO, for many years before moving to North Brunswick in 1994.

Dr. Johnson received his B.A. from Stanford University, his M.A. in Cinema Production from the University of Southern California, his M.B.A and his Ph.D. in Business Administration and Marketing from the University of Colorado at Boulder. For the past five years, Dr. Johnson was a Professor of Marketing with Montclair State University. He previously taught and did research at Rutgers University, from 1999 until 2002; at Baruch College, City University of New York, from 1994 until 1999; and at the University of Colorado at Boulder, from 1987 until 1993. His research focused on customer relationships to service organizations, psychology and marketing. Prior to receiving his Ph.D., he and his family owned and operated a small family business, the Ben Franklin Variety Store in Boulder, CO.

He was an Eagle Scout, and a member of the St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Monmouth Junction. He was also a volunteer of OZANAM men’s shelter, New Brunswick, one of his favorite church activities. Son of the late Clarence T. and Lois M. Jensen Johnson, he is survived by his wife of 30 years, Sandra K. Nicholson Johnson, a son, Kyle D. Johnson, a daughter, Ascia C.
