Thanks to David Crone

Many thanks to my friend David Crone for adopting Jay Johnson's first "Squeaky" dummy. This character is a modified Jerry Mahoney doll that was mass produced by Juro Novelty Company. This puppet was modified in the early 1960's and has a custom wig and wardrobe. Jay later replaced this "Squeaky "with a dummy made by Art Sieving.

Although Jay appeared on dozens of television shows, tourists at Vent Haven typically remember him from his role as Chuck Campbell on SOAP (1977-1981). Jay also won a Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event for his one man show, The Two and Only in 2007.

Jay has been a member of the Vent Haven Museum Board of Advisors for decades. He attends our annual ConVENTion and is a friend to everyone he meets. Jay is quick to encourage vents and always has a great story to tell. If you've had the honor to have met him, I know you'll agree that it's rare to know someone as talented, funny, and kind as Jay.
