Lonnie Johnson is an inventor and engineer with a net worth of $360 million. Lonnie Johnson earned his net worth through inventions of the Super Soaker Water Gun, and the Johnson Thermo-Electrochemical Converter System, as well as his ownership of two companies Excellatron Solid State and Johnson Electro-Mechanical Systems. He is also known for his writings on spacecraft power systems. He was born in Mobile, Alabama U.S.
Alonzo "Lonnie" Johnson (February 8, 1899 - June 16, 1970) was an American blues and jazz singer/guitarist and songwriter who pioneered the role of jazz guitar and is recognized as the first to play single-string guitar solos. Johnson was not only one of the few black blues musicians invited to be 'guest featured' on a number of jazz recording sessions, he was also one of the only classic 1920's blues artists to have a revived a high-charting career after WWII.

He and his brother settled in St. Louis in 1921. The two brothers performed as a duo, and Lonnie also worked on riverboats, working in the orchestras of Charlie Creath and Fate Marable. In 1925 Lonnie married, and his wife Mary soon began to pursue a blues career in her own right, performing as Mary Johnson and pursuing a recording career from 1929-1936. She is not to be confused with the later soul and gospel singer of the same name. As is often the case with early blues artists, information on Mrs Johnson is often contradictory and confusing. Many online sources give her name before marriage as Mary Smith, and state that she began performing in her teens. However, author James Sallis gi
