    大丈夫です です Is like the "It's" of "It's All right"
    僕はジョナタンです。 です Is like the "am" of "I am Jhonatan"
    です is an auxiliar verb. Means To Be, and To Have in some cases
    Basically that's です... Is really simple

    (これは)-(omitted) subject 大丈夫です - predicate

    僕は - subject ジョナタンです - predicate
