On 3 Fe­bru­ary 2018, the in­ter­na­tional cryp­to­zo­o­log­i­cal com­mu­nity lost an­other ma­jor fig­ure with the pass­ing of cel­e­brated big­foot field re­searcher Jc John­son as a re­sult of dou­ble pneu­mo­nia. Born in Ari­zona but based in Min­nesota since mid-2017, as a pro­fes­sional out­doors guide of more than 20 years’ stand­ing Jc’s knowl­edge of the wilds and also of big­foot lore was leg­endary, and he was al­ways much sought af­ter, both by other big­foot re­searchers and the mass me­dia, for his un­ri­valled field skills and ex­pe­ri­ence; and not just in re­la­tion to big­foot. In­deed, he was fondly nick­named the In­di­ana Jones of cryp­to­zo­ol­ogy, be­cause as CEO, Pres­i­dent, and founder of Crypto Four Cor­ners, he led nu­mer­ous teams of re­searchers on field in­ves­ti­ga­tions into a wide range of mys­tery beasts re­put­edly in­hab­it­ing the re­mote Four Cor­ners wilder­ness re­gion of Ari­zona, Colorado, New Mex­ico, and Utah, in­clud­ing al­leged man-beasts, ptero­dactyls, gi­ant snakes, skin-walk­ers, dog­men, and much more.

Jc and I never met, but he was one of my very first Face­book friends, right back at the be­gin­ning of my ap­pre­hen­sive en­try onto the so­cial me­dia stage a decade ago, and he al­ways took a great in­ter­est in my own re­searches and writ­ings, just as I did in his. Our deep­est sym­pa­thy and sin­cer­est con­do­lences here at FT go to all of Jc’s many other friends and cryp­to­zo­o­log­i­cal col­leagues but above all to his fam­ily.
