On Monday, February 24th of 2014, at approximately 11:30am Eastern time, Jennifer Lawson lost her life in a tragic accident outside of Nottingham Elementary School. 

She was rushed to the hospital with critical injuries, and passed on later that day. She leaves behind her husband, Neal, her daughter Sadie, and her two boys, Cooper and Booker.

Jen was a caring and loving mother that put family and friends first. Her compassion and caring touched all of those around her. She will be sorely missed. 

We thank you all for sending your thoughts and prayers.

Dear YouCaring.Com donors,

A year ago I lost my best friend, my wife and the mother of my three children.  In the wake of that tragedy you all stepped forward with kindness and generosity.  I want to personally thank you for your generous contribution to the memory Jennifer Lawson.

I am excited to share with all of you that, because of your kindness, we have been able to realize Jennifer’s vision of helping economically vulnerable mothers-to-be and their babies gain access to counseling and much need medical care.  Your donations were used to create a fund within the Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation (JB-LF) that has already impacted the lives of new mothers and they’re newborn babies.  If you would like to learn more about JB-LF, please visit www.jb-lf.org.

I can’t thank you all enough for helping to build a legacy for Jennifer while helping mothers and babies in need!  Please accept our sincere appreciation for your prayers, support and generosity.

Sincerely,

Neal Lawson

All, I share a note from Neal:

"I continue to be overwhelmed with the outpouring of love, support and prayers for the kids and me. It is making a difference and getting us through each day. Thank you."

I'd like to share the following, and hope all in the local community can turn out in support of Jenn and Nottingham Elementary PTA.

On March 22 the Nottingham Elementary PTA are holding their annual 5k race and fun run. It will be presented this year in memory of Jennifer Lawson. This is the school where Jenn spent many hours volunteering. Jenn ran this race several times and most recently placed in her age group. Proceeds from this race support the PTA, Nottingham teachers and Nottingham students.

If you are interested in supporting or participating in this race you can do so here: http://www.raceit.com/search/event.aspx?id=24881

Thank you Nottingham Knights and Nottingham PTA for this gesture and the incredible support you have been providing to the Lawson family!

Yesterday was Jenn’s memorial. Many came together to celebrate Jenn’s life and pay their respects. It was wonderful to see so many turning out in support of the Lawson family. And they once again convey their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of you that have offered such wonderful support, prayers, and messages of kindness.

Over the next months I will continue to keep those who follow this memorial website informed as much as possible as to how to honor the memory of Jennifer Lawson. It is the months to come that will be the hardest, as life begins to find a new routine without her. I know it is hard to conceive a day without Jenn, but we all must be strong for the family.

If you have stories you’d like to share about Jenn, please feel free to reach out and share. We will pass these on to the family. Again, thank you, and God bless.

We still need your help. The police are seeking two cars that potentially witnessed the tragic accident on Feb 24th. If you have any information, please contact the Arlington County Police Department. Investigators say the drivers or occupants of those vehicles could give them valuable details in the case.

I thank you for your support.

My dear friend, Neal, lost his wife and mother to his 3 children Sadie, Booker, and Cooper yesterday in a senseless and tragic accident.

Jennifer Lawson will be missed. She was a kind soul, willing to do anything for her family. As a husband of fourteen years to my wife and father of two, I can't even fathom the depth of pain this loss must bring to my friend, his family, and his children.

The link below is for a Memorial Fund that I have established to help the family. I thank you in advance for helping out during this trying time.

Should you have questions, or want to send an item to the Lawson family, please feel free to contact me directly via the "Contact the Organizer" link.
