Jazmine Denise Williams- Johnson was born October 3, 1986, in Dallas, Texas to Gloria Williams and Wendell Earl Johnson.
Jazmine attended Martin Weiss Elementary School where she participated in Oratorial competitions and played her first instrument, the Violin. She also cheered for the Oak Cliff Jets. She attended D.A. Hulcy Middle School, where she was in the band and choir. Jazmine was so happy and proud to attend David W. Carter High School where she was in the Marching Band her entire high school years. Jazmine was proud to be one of the top graduating seniors in her class. She was a 2005 Concord Baptist Church Debutante. Jazmine went on to attend Dillard University before Hurricane Katrina sent her to Texas Collage for a year.
During her high school summers Jazmine worked as a (DISD) intern under Mark Pierce and Georgia McCater (Girl Scouts), as a group leader for the Zaragoza Super Kids Program. This program was very special because it catered to Homeless children in Dallas. One summer Jazmine taught her group and performed a song in “sign language.” Her voice was so sweet as she sang, “Precious Lord” for The Super Kids Black History Program to fulfill a request of her mother.
Jazmine was a mother of three, Timothy (11), Carlos (10), and Carla (8).
Jazmine was a member of the True Gospel Missionary Baptist Church under Pastor Calvin Washington, where she was a member of the Pee Wee Choir under Sister Louise Washington.
Jazmine leaves to cherish her memories: her 3 children, Timothy D. Williams (Roderick Thompson), Carlos D. and Carla D. Richardson (Carl “Redd” Richardson); mother, Gloria Williams-Hayes (Gerald); brother, Garyon L. Williams Sr. (Ashanti), Audrey, and Devarrian (Hayes); father, Wendell E.
