Elliot Christopher Vaughn

• Updated Aug 8, 2019 at 4:05 PM

Elliot Christopher Vaughn passed tragically while at work on August 6 as the result of anaphylactic shock from multiple hornet stings.

He was 26 years old. He is survived by his parents Chris and Anne Vaughn of Johnson City, brother Max, and fiancée, Jessie Paige Feathers. As well as grandmother, Beverly Vaughn and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Elliot was born in Johnson City and attended Saint Mary’s Catholic School prior to graduating from Science Hill High School in 2011, where he was on the wresting team. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee in Industrial Engineering in May of 2017. For the last two years, he utilized the knowledge he’d gained from school to work and become co-owner of Mr. Green Thumb, their family business, with his father.

Elliot was charismatic, funny, and full of life. He was an avid sailor, hunter, and most recently, honey beekeeper. Those that loved Elliot realize the hole that is now left in the world. He was a giant personality that filled the room with charm and a laugh. Neither will ever be forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been created for the Science Hill Wrestling Team. Donations to the Elliot Vaughn Memorial Fund for Science Hill Wrestling Club can be made at all First Tennessee and Capital Banks or mailed to:
