Jeri Thompson is a stay at home mom, who in between car pools, play dates and classroom projects, provides commentary for a number of radio, TV and online outlets. Topics often include policy and politics in the context of how such things affect moms and families. She can frequently be seen on Fox News shows, including regular appearances on “Hannity.” She served as a co-host on the “Fred Thompson Radio Show,” something that was unavoidable because, first, former Sen. Fred Thompson is her husband, and second, the show was broadcast from their home studio.
For many years, Jeri worked as a communications and political consultant in Washington, D.C. She worked at the Republican National Committee, the Republican Senatorial Conference, Burson-Marsteller and the law firm of Verner Liipfert.
Jeri graduated with a degree in English literature from DePauw University in 1988. She currently serves on the nominations board of the Susan B. Anthony List, and has been involved in a number of political and philanthropic fundraising efforts over the years. She and Fred live in the Washington, DC area, with their two children, Hayden and Sammy.
