Longtime Borsheims Employee Jennifer Johnson Retires After 36 Years


After 36 years, Jennifer Johnson, vice president of human resources and retail operations for Borsheims, is retiring from the Omaha, Neb.–based jeweler.

Johnson began her career at Borsheims in 1987 and established its first human resources department. From there, she developed Borsheims’ recruiting, onboarding, and compensation and benefits programs. She also oversaw the store’s customer-service, gift-wrap and shipping, facilities, and in-house repair departments.

“Jennifer has been a large part of Borsheims for the past 36 years and has helped guide the store to its current growth and prominence,” said president and CEO Karen Goracke in a statement. “Her dedication to our business is something I will always hold dear to my heart.”

In the same statement, Johnson said she is looking forward to spending more time with her family, as well as continuing her hobbies of biking, yoga, and reading.

Borsheims is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, the holding company of famed businessman Warren Buffett.
