February 4, 2012 by staff
Fred And Jeri Thompson Met In Checkout Line, Jeri Kehn Thompson (born September 30, 1966) is an American radio talk show host, columnist for The American Spectator, political commentator, and former political consultant for the Washington, D.C. law firm of Verner Liipfert. She has also worked for the Republican Senate Conference and the Republican National Committee. She was also employed with the public relations and lobbying firm Burson-Marsteller.
Thompson is married to Fred Thompson, former United States Senator, lawyer, lobbyist, screen actor, and former 2008 U.S. Republican Party presidential candidate.
Jeri Kehn and Fred Thompson first met on July 4, 1996 while both were in the checkout line at a Kroger supermarket. They were married on June 29, 2002 at First Congregational United Church of Christ in Naperville. It was her first marriage and the senator’s second.
On September 27, 2003, she gave birth to a daughter, Hayden. A second child, Samuel, was born in November 2006.
When they married in 2002, she was 35 years old and he was 59. A New York Times article dated July 8, 2007 considered whether the so-called “May-December marriage” could become a campaign issue, noting that “she is not a home wrecker” and is “accomplished in her own right”.
In mid-December 2007, the Associated Press asked some of the 2008 candidates what their favorite possession was. Whereas Rudy Giuliani said his grandfather’s pocketwtch, Fred Thompson responded tongue-in-cheek, “trophy wife.”
