A message from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Officer Stephen Tyrone Johns 1969–2009

Officer Stephen Tyrone Johns 1969–2009

Dear Museum Friend,

On Friday, June 19, our Museum community joined the family and friends of Officer Stephen Johns at a deeply moving service that mourned his loss, celebrated his life and paid tribute to his legacy. Officer Johns’ pastor challenged all of us to do more to honor the ideals that our beloved colleague sacrificed his life protecting. We are moving forward with renewed dedication to our work, but our first priority is Officer Johns’ family.

Therefore, the Museum has established the USHMM Officer Johns Family Fund. One hundred percent of your gift will be forwarded directly to the family of Officer Johns. Please note that under IRS regulations gifts such as this are not tax-deductible.

Gifts can be made in any of the following ways:

Mail a check payable to USHMM Officer Johns Family Fund to USHMM, 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place, SW, Washington DC 20024.
Call toll free 877-91USHMM (877-918-7466) from 8:00am to 8:00pm Eastern time.

We are most appreciative for the outpouring of support and messages of condolence we have received from so many concerned citizens and organizations across the country and around the world. Officer Johns will be deeply missed by his Museum family and all who knew him.
