Bio

Jaron Johnson was born on February 16th 1977 to Sharon Johnson and Sherman Wolfe. He was born in the University of Pennsylvania which is located in the city of Philadelphia. God graced this world with his presence that day as he started the journey of life.

Jaron was an only child and was brought up in his earlier years by his Grandmother (nicknamed by the Johnson family "BIG MOM") while his mother worked to earn a good income for her newly acquired family member. J's life was pretty smooth until about the age of ten years old. That smooth ride in life would take a quick bumpy turn that was unexpected. Jay was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes.

The change from Middle school to High school was very challenging. Popularity, peer pressure, and promiscuity awaited him along with other surprises. The next drastic turn following puberty would be the diagnosis of a kidney disease called Nuerphoritic Syndrome. Until his mother could be cleared for a kidney transplant by a living related donor, J had to have dialysis treatments three times a week.

The pressure to fit in with the crowd led J into using drugs, getting drunk, clubbing, fornication, drug dealing , and all sorts of ungodliness. But even in this God has His hand in his life, because it was through these struggles that J would become the passionate man of God that he is today.

From being an only child to not having a true male figure around, all comes into play when making simple and the most difficult decisions in life. But nothing , nothing was too hard for God.

J was brought up in church and knew of God but it wasn't until he hit rock bottom in 1999 that God became real to him and he accepted Jesus Christ into his heart. Along with a relationship with The Lord came responsibilities. God blessed J with gifts, one of them as you know so well was the ability to put together heart felt bars in song form. God set out for J to reach the masses and so he has. He's been on Power 99 Sunday Morning Inspirations (a secular radio station for Philadelphia, New Jersey and surrounding areas) with Don Won and Tiffany Bacon. He's performed at many events such as community out reaches, Rap Fest, and Sista's to name a few. He's shared the stage in ministry with other Jesus Driven Artist such as Cross Movement, Da Truth, Corey Reed, Todd Bangz, and many more. He has also been a featured artist on the Cross Movement's Holy Culture and Gifted Wrapped projects as well as Da Truth's Moment of Truth album. He's been a featured artist at Rap Fest in New York City with Rock Soul where he was formally know as J-Silas. He was also a featured solo artist on the "Rock of Ages Vol. 1 compilation C.D. and "Urban Compositions". In 2004 J would release his 1st solo project with Rock Soul titled "Sound Proof" with Lee Jerkins and Dave Hackley.

Now, simply know as Jaron Johnson, J is married to the beautiful and lovely Mrs. Maricris Johnson and they have a cute as a button son, Jasir Alberto Johnson. They have plans and hopes to build their wonderful family as God stated in Genesis. They attend Antioch of Calvary Chapel in West Philadelphia and are serving God in mighty ways.

J in his attempts to reach out to the masses in the community will be dropping his FREE C.D. titled "NO EXCUSES" this summer. This C.D. will be so serious! Pressing on to further the work of the Gospel with his ministry/career in music, J is also working towards a sophomore project, so stay logged in!
