Examples of Jefferson in a Sentence

  1. John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

  2. Lee Merritt:

    The family of Atatiana Jefferson is relieved that Aaron Dean has been arrested charged with murder, he did get what I wanted him to get, and this is only the start.

  3. Bob Trout:

    When I heard about the search warrant for Senator Burr's cell phone, my first thought was' speech or debate clause,' in the case of the FBI's Saturday night raid on Congressman Jefferson's office in the Rayburn House Office Building, Rayburn House had the look and feel of an invasion of Congressional sacred space. And on a bipartisan basis, Congress raised holy hell. Showing up at a Senator's personal residence and politely taking possession of a cell phone ? Not the same vibe.

  4. Haley Byrd:

My mom tricked me into thinking we were going to take family photos at the Jefferson memorial, and when we showed up Evan was there with his whole family. When I saw the Kit Kat box, I just started laughing. It was such a neat experience, and I am beyond grateful that Evan put so much thought into it.

  5. Hope Terhune:

    Jefferson City Schools's scary because we don't know who's going to wear one and who's not. Someone could have Jefferson City Schools and not know and be asymptomatic and still spread Jefferson City Schools and not wear a mask. There's still so much unknown.
