Jo Johnson

Jo Johnson, 86, long-time resident of Dublin, passed away peacefully, after a long battle with cancer, Jan. 23, 2022, at her residence, with loved ones by her side. Jo was born May 13, 1935, in Van Buren, Arkansas, the daughter of Robert Randolph Knight and Celia Jane (Wackerly) White. The family moved from Arkansas to Oakland, California, where she was raised from early childhood through high school. She moved to Los Angeles and started her life-long restaurant career; a carhop at the Original Mel's Diner in Los Angeles, owned/operated her own cafe in Turlock; (until she met, fell in love, and married Johnny Johnson); waitressed at Francesco's in Oakland for many years, serving Al Davis and other sports personalities, Copper Skillet in Dublin, Emil Villa Hickory Pit in Walnut Creek (to name a few). She didn't just serve up a cup of Joe or a hot meal to her customers. She dished out a heart full of love and kindness; mixed with a sense of humor and sassiness only she was known and loved for. Always eager to listen and get to know each and every one of her "regulars" on a personal level.

UK universities’ closeness to China poses risks, says Jo Johnson

The former universities minister Jo Johnson has warned of the “poorly understood” risks of increasingly close collaboration between UK universities and China. A study led by Johnson identified a significant increase in funding from China and collaboration with Chinese researchers over the past two decades, including in sensitive areas for national security and economic competition – such as automation, telecommunications and materials science – or in disciplines where collaboration may threaten freedom of speech.
