We find that a suppression of the collapse and revival of population inversion occurs in response to insertion of Gaussian quenched disorder in atom-cavity interaction strength in the Jaynes-Cummings model. The character of suppression can be significantly different in the presence of non-Gaussian disorder, which we uncover by studying the cases when the disorder is uniform, discrete, and Cauchy-Lorentz. Interestingly, the quenched averaged atom-photon entanglement keeps displaying nontrivial oscillations even after the population inversion has been suppressed. Subsequently, we show that disorder in atom-cavity interactions helps to avoid sudden death of atom-atom entanglement in the double Jaynes-Cummings model. We identify the minimal disorder strengths required to eliminate the possibility of sudden death. We also investigate the response of entanglement sudden death in the disordered double Jaynes-Cummings model in the presence of atom-atom coupling.
