Maretta L. Johnson of Canton, Georgia, born in Mitchell County, Georgia on October 17, 1967, was raised in the small town of Pelham' Georgia (approximate population 4,400). Her parents are Cynthia and Preston Thomas, who still live in Pelham. Her mother worked for many years with Coats & Clark. Maretta's father is employed by Allied Barton. Maretta has one sibling, Wanda Thomas Heath of McDonough, Georgia. Wanda is a graduate of Georgia Southern University and works as a legal contractor. Upon graduation from Pelham High School, Maretta attended West Georgia College in Carrollton, Georgia where she met and married, Jacques T. Johnson. She went on to receive a Paralegal Certification and her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Marketing from DeVry University. Maretta has many years of experience as a Paralegal specializing in workers’ compensation, personal injury, and employment/labor law. Maretta is a survivor. In 1992 after suffering the loss of her daughter, Jazmine Shardae Johnson, as the result of a tragic accident, Maretta encourages other parents who have suffered the loss of a child. Maretta and Jacques now have two other children, Jacques T. Johnson II (JT) and Jarrett Dominic Johnson. Her company, Jaz Innovations, Inc. is named for their first born. Maretta recently received her patent for the Total Travel Baby Bag. (Patent No:US D614,867S ) It is the first diaper bag with a built-in bottle warmer (battery powered & car adapter), storage cooler, garment bag conversion, back pack conversion and plastic storage pouch for soiled items. This is an all-in-one travel bag for parents. Necessity is definitely the mother of inventions, because Maretta was motivated to create such a travel bag while preparing for a road trip with her newborn son, Jarrett. After her road trip, she saw the Oprah Winfrey show which featured mom inventors and she was encouraged to get started on her idea. Now that the patent has been received, her company, along with her dynamic manufacture, Vesture Corporation, has brought the product to life. They have secured major retailers and are negotiating with other major local and international retailers. You may purchase the bag at Buy Buy Baby, Right Start, Sears.com, through Independent Order Agents, and www.totaltravelbag.com . Jaz Innovation is currently working on the development of a line of Total Travel Baby products and also the development of the foundation, Jazmine's Angels. Jazmine’s Angels, will be established to assist parents who have suffered the death of a child with funeral expenses and counseling them through the initial grief process. Maretta's goal is to continue to be innovative while helping others through her testimonies, seminars, products, and foundation. " Families Helping Families."
