Chris Jenney

This online book of condolence has been set up to remember our dear friend and University of London colleague, Chris Jenney.

Gregarious, with an innate gift for friendship, plus a genuine desire to help students and Teaching Centre colleagues alike, Chris gave a staggering 35 years’ service to the University as a Senior Admissions Manager and, more recently, Head of Institutions. His enormous contribution to the success of the University of London Worldwide was rightly acknowledged with a special award in June 2015, at an event which celebrated the 150th anniversary of the first University of London exams to be taken overseas.

Chris will be deeply missed by us all, but remembered often with much love and affection.
