Jennifer Christensen Thompson

September 13, 1983 — December 19, 2023

Jennifer was born in the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.  She was a preemie but strong. That was her motto, little but mighty. As a little girl there was nothing she couldn’t do, in fact she could do it better.

 

She loved people.  She was a born entertainer and had a sense of humor like no other.  As a child she loved playing soccer, riding horses, swimming, riding bikes, hiking and skiing/snowboarding.  She loved to arm wrestle and could get the best of the boys her age.  She was a delight to her dad and mom and they loved her so much.  They do not remember her ever getting into trouble as a little one.  She was just plain good.

 

Her best friend was her sister, Annie.  They were inseparable.  Their life was intertwined, and they shared friends, activities and were each other’s confidants. Life was truly a joint process for them. When Annie passed away 20 years ago, Jen never recovered. The loss and survivors guilt devasted her.

 

Jen had three beautiful children who she adored immensely. She had years of joy being their mother. She coached them and their friends in soccer, played endless night games, and worked hard to support them.

 

Jen worked as a Dental Assistant and loved her job. She especially loved working in pediatric dentistry where she was working at the time of her death.

 

Jen was killed in a traffic accident where she was struck by a vehicle. Jen will be missed by all who loved her.

 

She is survived by her mother, Julia (Higley) Johnson, (Kevin); Her father Steven D Christensen  (Jane); Her sister Taylee Lundin, and children Kye and Leo. Also she is survived by her children Gabriel Mafua, Annie Mafua, and Mason Thompson.

 

She was preceded in death by her sister Annalee Christensen.
