Parish Deacon

The Reverend Dede Jamison was "raised up" to the diaconate at St. Bede's Menlo Park, where she had been a member for many years. She studied for the ministry at the School for Deacons, Bexley Hall Seminary, and the Church Divinity School of the Pacific. She was ordained a deacon in 1990, and received the M.Div. degree from CDSP in 1992. Since her ordination Dede has served both at Christ Church and at Christ Church Los Altos, returning to Portola Valley in 2004. Dede founded the Episcopal Chaplaincy at Stanford Hospital in 1993 and served at the hospital as the Episcopal Chaplain until 2000. The Chaplaincy remains a vital part of the diocese's hospital ministry to this day. Dede is married to Rex and between them they have two sons, two daughters-in-law and three grandchildren.
