Jennifer Evelyn Olson-Bayoumi passed peacefully of natural causes on October 14th, one day before her 51st birthday.

Many hearts mourn the sudden loss of Jennifer’s vibrant and loving spirit.  Witty, sensitive, generous, “brighter than the stars,” Jennifer brought humor and imagination to all she did and joy to all, especially to those she loved. Her independence and strength made her life uniquely and wonderfully hers; she did it her way.

Jennifer was born October 15, 1967 in Shell Lake, WI. She attended Webster, WI Elementary School, and later attended school in Minneapolis.  She graduated with honors from Washburn High School. 

During her school years, Jennifer held leading roles with the Fuller Young People’s Theater of Minneapolis and traveled to London with them to perform.  Jennifer’s post-high school years were filled with adventure and travel.  She spent time in Malaysia, Thailand, Israel, Greece, Bali, France and England and other countries before returning to the States. 

After attending San Francisco State University, Jennifer settled in St. Paul where she met her future husband and the love of her life, Ahmad Bayoumi, of Cairo, Egypt.  Jennifer and Ahmad married on May 9, 2004, within months of their first meeting. They lived in San Francisco for several years and most recently in Woodville, Wisconsin where Jennifer worked as a CNA, and for Trient Industries.

Jennifer was the loving wife of Ahmad Bayoumi, the beloved daughter of Robert and Ellen Durand Olson, and the beloved little sister of Anna Marie Webber and Jack Webber.  Jennifer will forever be remembered with great and abiding love by her husband, her parents, her sister and brother-in law, beloved aunts and uncles, many cousins, and her loyal friends around the world.  A celebration of her life was held November 3rd at the Delta Marriott Hotel in Minneapolis.
