The Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High School community is grieving the loss of beloved football coach Jeff Johnson, who passed away suddenly Friday morning.
Johnson was found on the couch. No cause of death is known at this time.
Known to friends and family as “Big Jeff,” he was the first JV football coach at the Upper Marlboro, Maryland, high school.
On Thursday, Wise’s athletic program tweeted that the coach helped start The Wise Way Foundation and was a “staple in his community.”
At Friday night’s varsity football game, the school held a moment of silence in Big Jeff’s memory.
