On Dec. 15, the HISD family suffered a terrible loss with the passing of Dedre Jefferson. Ms. Jefferson served the children of HISD with genuine passion. As a senior CTE program specialist, she advocated for all children and helped put many of them on a path to success.

When she wasn’t on the job here at HISD, Ms. Jefferson was serving the Alief ISD community as a respected member of that school district’s Board of Education. Ms. Jefferson was also a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  

“Ms. Jefferson made a positive difference in the lives of countless children across our city,” said Chief Academic Officer Grenita Lathan. “She also inspired those of us who were honored to work with her.”

Grief counselors are available help staff deal with this tragic loss. If anyone is in need of counseling support, contact the Crisis Intervention Office at 713-923-8597.
