Dr. Jennifer Fease was honored as Alumna of the Year for Lee University’s Department of History, Political Science, and Humanities during the school’s 2022 Homecoming festivities. 

“Dr. Fease was selected as our Alumna of the Year because she models the department’s values of professional success and civic engagement,” said Dr. Robert Barnett, distinguished professor of history. 

Dr. Fease has forged a successful career in law, serving as the senior vice president and group counsel for Litigation at Equifax Inc., a global data, analytics, and technology company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. In this role, she is responsible for all litigation filed against Equifax and its subsidiaries. Prior to her current role, she practiced business litigation for eight years at King & Spalding LLP, an international, Global 50 law firm. 

While at Lee, Dr. Fease was a double major in history and political science. After graduation, she was accepted by the Vanderbilt University School of Law where she obtained her Juris Doctor degree in 2005. Dr. Fease lives in Sandy Springs, Ga., with her husband and three children. 

Dr. Fease received the Alumna of the Year Award at a special breakfast held earlier this month.
