Born in Memphis, TN, Jennifer was devoted to her family. She adored and cherished her daughters, whom she was a very involved presence in their lives. Jennifer was very passionate about watching her daughters participate in soccer and was eager to attend their games. Even while she battled cancer, she cheered from the sidelines. She was known for her big personality and spunky attitude. Friends of her daughters enjoyed coming to her for advice as she was their sounding board, a great listener, and was never afraid to speak her mind.

Survivors include her husband, Norman O’Connor; two daughters, Bailey Madison O’Connor of Oxford, MS and Morgan Leigh “Mo” O’Connor of Oxford, MS; father, Christopher Wall of Memphis, TN;  mother, Cathy Kinsley and step-father, Robert of Bartlett, TN; mother-in-law, Alice Bethay; sister, Jamie Leigh Shields and husband, John of Arlington, TN; great-grandmother, Tommie Lou King of Bartlett, TN; two nephews, Dawson Kade Shaver and Tallen Grey Shaver; and many aunts and uncles, and cousins.
