Jennifer Ellen Halley, 68, passed away Saturday, May 2, 2020 in Fort Wayne. She was born in Winchester, Indiana to the late Leon and Phyllis Halley. Jennifer worked as an administrator and educator all over the world.
Jennifer graduated in 1969 from Winchester Community High School. She attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana and graduated in 1973 with a degree in special education. Jennifer also received her master’s degree in education from Indiana University.
Her first teaching job was at Morton Elementary School in Winchester. She later moved to Indianapolis to teach at IPS 41. Jennifer taught there for 10 years. During this time, Jennifer was not only dedicated to the classroom but also to Special Olympics. She served as Director for the State of Indiana Special Olympics.
Jennifer had a passion for adventure. Her teaching career took her overseas to Europe and the Middle East to work for the Department of Defense, Dependent Services (DODDS.) While in Europe, she served in the capacity of a special education teacher in Germany and later as a curriculum director for Europe. She transferred to Bahrain where she was the Assistant Principal for the U.S. Military school. In 1999, Jennifer was awarded the DODDS Assistant Principal of the Year.
To be closer to family, Jennifer returned to US soil in 2005. She accepted the position as principal at a military elementary school in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Her greatest pride and sense of accomplishment was being selected to lead the design and development of Fort Campbell’s new elementary school, Barsanti Elementary. She served as principal when the school opened. In 2008, Jennifer was awarded the DODDS Principal of the Year.
Upon retirement, Jennifer moved to Fort Wayne to be near her beloved nephews. Here, she made many new friends. She was an active member of the Appleseed Quilters Guild and Covenant United Methodist Church. Jennifer was a loyal IU basketball fan as well as a Notre Dame football season ticket holder.

Jennifer was such a loving and caring person. As an educator, she always put children at the center of all of her work ~ dedicating many hours to make sure that each student received the best educational experiences. As a daughter, sister, and aunt, she loved to share stories about her family ~ when she spoke of her nephews, Artem and Andrei, she would light up with love and pride. As a friend, she was loyal and generous ~ she brought humor, love, and caring support into my life. Thinking of her will always bring joy to my heart because I will be reminded of all of the laughter, love, and generosity that she shared with me and so many others.

Jennifer was a good person and a good friend. Always upbeat, cheerful, positive. Always willing to help others. Always ready with a smile or laugh. I loved her purple hair.
She did an amazing job heading up the Christmas stocking project at Appleseed this past year, in spite of her ongoing health issues.
She will be greatly missed by her many friends.
