Knox County Republican Criminal Court Judge Ray Lee Jenkins Has Gone To His Eternal Reward

The News-Sentinel and Volunteer TV are reporting that Knox County Republican Criminal Court Judge Ray Lee Jenkins has passed on to his eternal reward today. Knox County has lost a fine jurist.

Our prayers are with Michele, and his stepson, Robert Carter Ball; his former wife, Elizabeth; his daughter, Leigh Ann Jenkins Workman and son-in-law, Mark Workman; his son, Ray Hal Jenkins and daughter-in-law, Belinda; his daughter, Linda Miriam Jenkins Hatcher and son-in-law, Mark Hatcher; and his eight grandchildren and three step-grandchildren.

I am most grateful that during my time as Chairman of the Knox County Republican Party that I was able to assist in a leadership position in re-electing Judge Jenkins (2006) to the bench that he served so distinctively for so many years. He was attacked during the campaign and after, but in the end we won.

The Jenkins family have been instrumental in the growth and development of the Knox County Republican Party. For that we are all forever grateful.

Judge Jenkins, you did good
