Jonathan Nicholas Smith “Johnny” passed away on June 17th in Omaha Nebraska at the age of 27 after a brave battle with cancer.

He is preceded in death by Andrew C.M. Jacobsen (uncle, M), Susan D. Smith (grandmother, P), Dwight E. Wilcox (great grandfather, M). He is survived by his parents Terrence M.

His aunts and uncles (M) Terrence D. Jacobsen, Tara & Tyler Kush, Paige Jacobsen, Chance Jacobsen, (P) Jessica & Justin McAdams, Jonathan & JoAnne Smith, Justin & Cassandra Smith, and a very large number of cousins.

Johnny had an outgoing personality, was quick-witted, smart, and had a great sense of humor. He enjoyed gaming online and board games with his family. He brought laughter, smiles, and joy to everyone around him. Our hearts are broken by his passing.

Johnny graduated with his associates degree from Metro Community College and his bachelor’s degree from Bellevue University while concurrently battling an aggressive cancer. He was initiated into the Kappa Beta Delta Phi business society, was a legal Notary Public in the state of Nebraska, and officiated his first wedding as an ordained minister of Universal Life Church in 2021.

Visitation will be held Saturday, June 24, from 3-5 pm at Heafey Hoffman Dworak Cutler at 7805 West Center Road in Omaha Nebraska.

Family and friends are invited to attend.
