Jennifer Ann Lee, 65, of Virginia Beach, passed peacefully at Sentara Hospice House Saturday, April 23, 2016. Born in Smithfield, NC she was the daughter of the late Walter Irvin and Christine Southerland Thompson. She was predeceased by son Nathan Thomas Lee and nephew Bo Thompson. Survived by sister Carole Thompson of Virginia Beach, brother and sister-in-law Tommy and Beth Thompson of Greenville, NC, and beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Jeni had a long successful career at Lockheed Martin, starting as a junior programmer and retiring 35 years later as a senior program manager. She loved her boxer Jackson, her sports teams (go Duke!) and especially her Mermaid friends. The volunteer work she did for the city was close to her heart as well as the good people she met at City Hall. Jeni’s life was marked by the friends she loved, the family she held dear, and her gentle and giving heart.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5792 Greenwich Road Virginia Beach, VA. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Bo Thompson Scholarship Fund (Pitt County Education Foundation 1717 West Fifth St. Greenville NC 27834), the Carolina Boxer Rescue (P.O. Box 87 Hampstead NC 28443), or other charity of choice.

Jeni was a wonderful soul. I’ll miss her terribly. I have so many good memories, that I will hold onto.

We are very sad over the loss of a dear friend. We both worked with Jeni; we remember lots of good times and the joy of developing a long-lasting friendship of which we value deeply.

So sad. I remember slumber parties at your house and how your cool big sister would hang out with us sometimes. Gosh. Where did the time go? You’re in my prayers.

Carole, I am so sorry for your loss of your “big” sister — I know how much I love mine, I can only imagine how much it hurts to see her leave this earth so young. I will hold you in my prayers.

Jeni was my first boss and left an impression that has lasted a lifetime. We were close for almost 10 years during the RNTDS days at SDC. We shared a love for music- me with dance and her with Bruce Springsteen. We used to dance at Catherine’s and philosophize over life and love at lunches. I feel like a part of me is gone which makes me sad. The unselfish side happily rejoices in her re-union with Nathan, her mom and other that left before her. Good-by Jeni and rest in the everlasting glow of Gods beautiful creation that awaits you! You were loved by more than you will ever know.
