Jennifer was born Oct. 16, 1966, in Fayetteville, N.C. She graduated from Southwest High School in Fort Worth and North Texas State University with a B.S. in accounting and an M.S. in taxation. She was a member of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority.
Jennifer was a director with Deloitte Tax, LLP. As a tax director, she led the Mid-America regions Global Employer Service (GES) co-sourcing practice.
Jennifer was loved and admired by both her colleagues and clients and had an unusual ability to take a colleague or client relationship and turn it into close, caring friendship.
Jennifer lived her life to the fullest and, although she had a demanding career, she never missed an opportunity to spend time with friends and family, especially her nieces and nephews, whom she adored.
Jennifer enjoyed traveling, reading, romantic comedies, the occasional poker tournament and sports--especially her beloved Dallas Stars. A Stars season ticket holder, she would entertain family, friends and clients at these games. She especially enjoyed sharing the game with her nephew, J.T. Her passion for hockey led her on a mission to see as many hockey arenas as she could, and she went on road trips to watch the Stars play in different cities.
One of her favorite memories was when she got to hold the Stanley Cup after the Stars won the championship.
She will always be remembered for bringing out the best in people, her infectious laugh and ability to poke fun at herself before anyone else had a chance to.
She had a passion for animals and had spent time volunteering at local shelters, as well as adopting stray cats over the years.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the members of her employer, Deloitte Tax, LLP, who have been so caring and supportive in assisting the family during these difficult times.
Survivors: Her parents, Thomas and Ruth Kemp; brother, Geoffrey and his wife, Deleigh; sister, Julie Seale and her husband, Joe; brother, Jack and his wife, Angela; nieces and nephews, Krystal Venable and husband, Jody, Ashleigh Holland, J.T. Seale, Abby Kemp, Katie Kemp and Joanna Seale; great-niece, Kayleigh Venable; great-nephew, Ayden Holland; her two cats, Kate and Leopold; and a large extended family mostly in the Tri-State area of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin, including her grandmother, Margaret Kemp of Dubuque, Iowa.
