* The following is an excerpt from a school work that Chase wrote about his family. In one section of that homework he was asked to write who is the most interesting person in his family and he said it's Uncle JJ:
Now the most interesting person in my family is my Uncle J.J (that’s Joe Johnson to you). He is the most interesting person because he is an excellent guitar player. He does concerts at one of the largest churches in Maui, Hawaii. He and his girlfriend like to enjoy life by doing things like going on 12 month road trips in a $3000 van. He has been all the way from the Panama Canal to Northern Alaska. He and his girlfriend have been West Coast and East Coast, and back again.
Many things make him the most interesting person in my family because he is the only long haired redhead in the family, and he invests large portions of his money in the stock market. Guess what? He is also the guy that thinks of the Red Bull commercials. Red Bull pays $15,000 a month him to sit around and think of advertising ideas and commercials. He gets to work with people like Shaun White, the Olympic gold medalist snowboarder, at the Winter X Games for him to support the consumption of Red Bull. He gets cool jobs like this because he got a marketing degree at USC. On his off time our families get together and go to a huge ski resort or go surfing in Maui.
