Bill & Evelyn Thompson

Bill Thompson is a 27-year career veteran of the US Navy. He was a communications specialist, intelligence officer, and investigator for the NCIS. Since retirement, he’s worked in business development, sales, and his latest role as a marketplace chaplain. Bill was widowed when his first wife Margie passed away leaving him and his two children.

Evelyn Husband Thompson is the widow of Columbia Space Shuttle Commander, Rick Husband, who died in 2003 when Columbia broke apart upon re-entry. Evelyn and her two children were thrust into a life they never imagined.  Eventually, she would speak and write about their experience across the nation. Her book “High Calling: The Courageous Life and Faith of Space Shuttle Commander Rick Husband” captured his life and their journey of faith with God. 

Bill and Evelyn married in January 2008.
