Jessie Johnson, vice president of sales and marketing at Blossman Gas and Alliance AutoGas, retired in June after working 46 years in the propane industry.

Johnson began his career at Blossman Gas in 1982 when he was hired as the head of operations. He helped to expand the company’s territories in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, and he eventually ran operations for the entire South region. He finished his career as vice president of sales and marketing for the company.

Johnson found great fulfillment in working with young managers, Blossman Gas says. He trained and mentored leaders at the company, including current CEO and former National Propane Gas Association chairman, Stuart Weidie.

According to the company, Johnson was heavily involved in promoting the propane industry and is a major supporter of continued research and development. His plans for retirement include working on a few propane projects. According to Johnson, even in retirement he plans to “keep giving back to the industry what it has given me.”
