 Jean Hill and Mary Moorman in the Z film
In the next frames, as Jean looks on, the President is shot in the head and killed.


Thank you for visiting our pages.


She had something that very few people in this world have anymore. She had compassion and she had courage. Those are the things that Jean should be remembered for. Her Warren Commission Testimony was about 6 seconds of her life and she lived for 69 years. How sad is it that we ignore everything else? Mike Mansfield's eulogy for Kennedy also described every survivor of the Kennedy assasasination: " There was a sound of laughter and in a moment, it was no more." Jean smiled and Jean laughed because Jean lived. They all do. Remember Jean as a mother and a grandmother. Remember her for being one of the most dedicated teachers I have ever known. That was her life and THAT is her legacy. My sincerest sympathies to the Hill family and her friends alike.

Jean Hill was discredited because of her observation of seeing a "little Dog" sitting between President Kennedy and Mrs. Kennedy at the time of the assasination , basically this observation appeared to make her a questionable witness. However the emergence of the lost TV tapes of the Kennedy's arriving at Love Field in Dallas clearly indicates that perhaps a spectator gave Mrs. Kennedy a "Lampchop" white dog puppet as she approached the Limousine to start the fatal motorcade ride through Dallas.Even people on this site contend there is noevidence of rhis in any of the above-view photos taken that day....I disagree. I know of a photo that shows a fluffy white object just to theright of Governor Connelly's shoulder and to the left of S.S.A. Roy Kellerman.
I think Jean Hill was credible and courageous and is another example of a profile in courage.

To a fine lady,who stood her ground,you knew what you saw,and so do the evil people that murdered our President.Maybe now you Know Who paid for the bullets that killed J.F.K. Some of us should ask Arlen, Gerald,and Howard what they Know. May God Bless And Keep You.

I met Jean at a book signing here in La. and took her out to dinner and dancing. My wife and myself are deeoply greatful to have sent an evening with this gracious lady whom the warren commission could not find for years and who was just a phone call away. Barbara and I thank you for a lovely evening!

Didn't know Jean passed away, guess I'm a little behind. I read her book and feel that she was credible and reported what she saw. For all of us that were alive during Kennedy's assasination, we all know where we were, and what we were doing when we heard the news. What happened in Dealy Plaza happened quickly and surprizingly. I see no reason to dispute Ms Hills recollection of the situation. After all of the "mysterious deaths" in the aftermath of the murder, I am amazed that she lived long enough to tell her story. May she rest in peace, and the Good Lord grant her the peace of mind she desrves.

Jean Hill was villified by the Posner types because she said that she saw a dog in the car with JFk & Jackie! As it turns out, there was indeed a stuffed animal dog on the backseat at the time. I do beleive that she enhanced her story because of a couple of things. First and foremost is that she was a product of the times and people couldn't be as forthright as you might think. If you want to know who really planned the JFK hit, look no further than Texas and the Hunts!

In closing, I have a picture somewhere of myself, my daughter, and the lady in red from 1995! She was truly a nice lady who I believed for the most part!

Hi, Jean. I'm the author of an italian book, "Here's Who Killed John Kennedy", and I remember You as the best no-believable witness of the Conspiracy Circus of Dallas. Sorry, Jean, but nobody like you have seen A DOG in the limousine between JFK and Jackie Kennedy! Ciao. Diego Verdegiglio, Roma, Italia

As a former staff attorney that served on the 1978 House Select Committee on Assassinations, I am quite familiar with Jean Hill and her eye witness account about the gun fire she recognized emanating from the grassy knoll. Of the many witnesses in Dealy Plaza that afternoon of Friday, 22 Novemer 1963, Jean's account of the assassination is not only credible, it is significant. Jean will be sorely missed. We can only hope that the Justice Department will pick up the torch where the HSCA left it. Jean would, I believe, want it that way.

I read Jean Hill's book from the library. She saw the truth, spoke the truth, though the bully boys threatened. Her sabotaged tie rod tells a tale. It takes plenty to accomplish that--it doesn't occur by chance. They thought they had another Karen Silkwood--but they had a surviving witness. Thanks to the library, they've STILL GOT A SURVIVING WITNESS. We will remember you, Jean: Thank You.

I am 22 years old now, so I wasn't around when Jfk was assassinated. But my mother was, and was living in America at the time. And she has inspired me to write about him, and the truth. I always looked up to jean Hill, and an inspiration to anyone in telling the truth, even when things got hard. I would have loved to have met her, and will think of her always.

was fortunate enough to have met Jean Hill in Dallas a year prior to her passing, I'm very depressed today as I am writing this now,being that I just heard about it today. Justlike I've done on too many other occassions I took it for granted that I would see her again soon someday and didn't fully appreciate it at the moment that I was talking to a historic person, a very important person, I'm at least proud to say I got her to sign her book for me,we will miss you greatly Jean,you were a true hero who stood up to authority and never backed down,even when your life was threatened,we can all learn from you as an example.to keep on fighting and never give up as you never did in your struggle for seeking the truth.rest in peace.

I was fortunate enough to meet Mrs. Hill when her book came out.

She discussed what she saw, and was, frankly, totally sincere and believeable.

She showed tremendouse courage to speak up, and history will reward her for her efforts at some time in the future.

She was a true hero. She knew the truth, and would not be moved. To the poster that made the comment about Jean seeing a small dog in the presidential limo, it's true she was ridiculed at the time for that observation by people who were willing to do things to discredit her, HOWEVER-- they had to eat crow, when it came to light that their WAS a small stuffed toy dog in the pres. limo. Someone had given it to the Kennedy's before the presidential route embarked. So you see, even in attempts to discredit Jean Hill she one ups you with the truth, and her remarkable powers of observation. She took it ALL in, and then told ALL of what she saw. SHE WAS RIGHT! God bless you Jean.

I interviewed Jean Hill back in 1993 for a story I was doing for a newspaper in Chicago. She didn't know me; I actually looked up her number in the phone book (yes, it was listed). She was quite gracious and we talked for a half-hour about the assassination (and the fact that her daughter had moved to the Chicago area and that she got out there from time to time). I'm very sorry to hear about her passing.

She was always attacked cause she spoke out on what she saw.I have only seen her on talk show., and have seen the video of her from nov22, 63..What bothered me is the critics that attack her only play the part of the video of nov 22, 63 wherte she said that there was a dog between JFK and JACKIE and thje tape was always stopped there. Bit if you watch te whole tape she continues that it looked like a dog,she couldn.t be sure {yellow roses} She was someone who cared and only the good die before their time

Jean Hill did not seek fame, and her name will not be found in any history book. Those of us who know that the official version of the JFK murder is fiction at its best, are all indebted to the courage and honesty of Jean Hill. Criticism of her testimony is just another bead in the strand of tragedies in this ongoing comedy perpetrated by the U.S. Government. Bless you, Jean.

A KIND SOUL.. SHE MAY INDEED CONTINUE TO BE A PART OF HISTORY, AS THE TRUE HAPPENING'S CONTINUE TO BECOME CLEARER.. WHEN I MET YOU IT WAS A TRUE HONOR, AS I NEVER GOT THE CHANCE TO GAZE UPON MY IDOL.. SO TO THE CURSE OF THAT MOMENT PLAGUED EACH ONE THAT WITNESSED IT..I PERSONALLY WANTED TO ASK JEAN ABOUT THE COLORADO TRIP TAKEN THAT WEEKEND BY SEVERAL OF THE DALLAS POLICE OFFICERS... IN WHATEVER WORDS THAT ARE WRITTEN ABOUT HER..IN WHATEVER FOND MEMORIES MANY MAY RECALL.. HER BEST ACCOMPLISHMENT IS THAT SHE LOVED.. THAT SHE PARTOOK IN A HISTORIC MOMENT AND THAT SHE CHOSE TO SHARE THAT MOMENT BEYOND ANY PARTICULAR AGENDA..
SHE WILL BE MISSED...
I FOR ONE WISH I KNEW HER BETTER...
IT IS SOME COMFORT TO REALIZE THAT SHE REST'S WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.. THAT THE DECEPTION AND BETRAYAL SHE MAY HAVE EXPERIENCED IN LIFE IS EXTINGUISHED IN THE LIGHT OF THE LOVE THAT REMAINS IN HER WAKE...
I AM VERY SORRY MY ILLNESS MADE ME MISS THIS YEARS CONFERENCE WHICH I'M SURE WAS ENRICHED BY HER MEMORY...
MAY YOUR FAMILY BE COMFORTED BY KNOWLEDGE AND CERTAIN FAITH THAT OUR TIME HERE IS BUT A BEGINING.. GOD BLESS... BOB COCHRAN...

Jean was a nice lady who I had th epleasure of meeting on moe than one occassion. SHe also spoke at CTKA's memorial service in 1993. She was a valuable witness also.i loved it when Walalce Milam found out there ws a stuffed teddy bear in the limo and people like Belin and Zaid were sent scrambling to finda way to make her accuracy look bad.

To bad Richard Case Nagell died the day he recieved his subpoena to testify beforew the ARRB,everyone is on a need to die basis only , whose hands were tied to become the third unwarrented decommision .

I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Jean Hill in the obituary section of the L.A. Times. I had just finished reading her biography a week before. I don't know that I could have taken the harassment she unfortenately had to go through. Her courage, devotion and commitment to finding the truth will shine brightly long after the pithy prose of the Posners of the world have turned to dust.

Jean took a lot of flack from the media and from those who supported the angry lone nut solution. She never wavered from her assertion that the shots that killed President Kennedy came from the Grassey Knoll, even after being pressured by officials right after the assassination. Her courage is greatly admired, and will be greatly missed.

I commented that it was an honor to meet such an important person who was a such big part of our history. She was beaming when she left, and I hoped that maybe I had put a little bit of sunshine into the day of someone who had been through so much.I really admired her tremendous spirit!

JEAN WAS A REAL FRIEND WHO WE ENJOYED HAVING OUT TO DINNER FOLLOWING A LOCAL BOOK SIGNING
WAYNE AND BARBARA LE BLEU

ABBEVILLE, LA USA - Thursday, November 16, 2000 at 20:27:23 (CST)


It was just a year ago this month that I met Jean Hill. I was attending the JFK Lancer Seminar on the JFK Assassination last November in Dallas, Texas. Jean was charming from the first moment; she was dressed in a beautiful shade of red and wore a winsome smile that was only out shone by the twinkle in her eye. We were all facinated by the things she had to say and won over by her wit and sense of humor. At the end of one evening of seminar activities, I saw Jean and a female companion waiting outside the Hotel; it seemed that they were expecting a ride home that wasn't going to show. I asked Jean if she would like me to drive her and her friend home. She gratefully agreed. I didn't know Dallas at all and she had to do all the navigating. At the end of out short journey to her home we said our good nights and she thanked me for the ride. I watched her go in the front entrance of her apartment building; then I sat in my car for a few moments thinking about who had just gotten out of my car. My eyes were drawn to the front passenger seat just vacated. The "Lady in Red," who had so courageously spoke the truth in the face of one of greatest lies perpetrated on the American nation, had just sat there a moment ago -- the sweet perfume of a true American hero had not been wasted on me. No, she had not saved a life at the risk of her own, rather she risked more than she knew to keep the truth from being the second victim on that fateful day in November 1963. I will always be thankful for Jean Hill's self-sacrificing commitment to her-story (especially in the face great political pressure -- this, to me, equates to patriotism in the finest tradition) and for the gift of that seredipitous evening where I met the teacher who herself became a lesson in American history. May God bless her soul and may God bless America.

I met Jean only once. That was at the San Francisco Forum on Sept. 10th(?), 1992. She gave her insight and knowledge of what had happened that terrible day, and I asked her to sign her book which I had gotten recently,and she gladly did. It was terribly windy that day, but she consented to letting me take her picture, and also wanted a picture of both of us. I took 2 pictures, and then we discussed her time being harassed by the FBI after her testimony
that she heard more shots than was "acceptable". I have one regret, and that is because I never mailed her copies of the pictures taken that day as she had requested. She even told me her address was the same as it had been at the time of the assassination, so I would have no problem getting them to her. She was a sweet lady who stuck to her guns even after all the death attempts and constant harassment. Then, later on, she spoke to schools
to make sure that they heard the other side of the story that was "adapted" to fit the events of that day. In her own way, she was a HERO, and she will now be able to hear the entire TRUE story, after fighting to get the truth out in her life here on earth. Because of this, she will Rest In Peace. I offer all her family and friends my sad condolences.

To the family of Jean Hill Just wanted send my condolences to you all. I met you Mother 8 years ago after reading her book, which was an inspiration to me. My daughter Amanda and I both became friends with her. When we came to Dallas for the first time in 1998 she met us at our hotel and introduced us to Madeleine Brown and really showed us the town. Jeanne you may remember me as the caller she would get when she would visit you in Chicago.
I haven't spoken to her since June and I called her Tuesday to see how she was doing. I had no idea what had happened. I want you to know that I think she was a wonderful woman and a good friend. I always told her I was her biggest fan.
I will miss her

My heart goes out to the Hill family.. Even though I never had the the honor of meeting her, I have always admired her courage in always standing up for what she believed no matter what the odds. That is fast becoming a rarity in our nation. In a way I envy Jean now.....she now knows THE TRUTH !!

God Bless !

I had the pleasure to first meet Jean in 1993 at the ASK conference. She was signing her book at Mark Oakes' sales table. She was a very kind and caring lady who held a special place in the hearts of man researchers and wlll truly be missed. God Bless!!

I was just 5 years old when JFK died that day, but in the years following his assassination, I always believed strongly that it was a conspiracy. In college, I did research and concluded based on several eyewitness accounts, that JFK was hit from the front and behind--acrossfire.
Triangulation of fire. That's a military tactic.
I'm sorry to hear about this fine lady who stood up as a witness in a moment engraved upon this nation's soul forever.

Like so many of us i wasnt fortunate enough to meet Jean but was aware of her sincerity and patriotism a person who was never afraid of speaking her mind with regard to the assassination in Dallas that day, where officials were cowering under the immense pressure of the truth Jean always told people her own version....the truth.
Accordingly she will be missed by us all, may your god bless and keep you.

Jean, you were much loved on this side of the Big Pond. I had the pleasure and privilege to meet you several times and you always found the time to speak with me and treat me with courtesy and consideration. I particularly remember you signing a copy of the Warren Repoprt for me with the words: "Never believe this fairy tale." I never will, Jean. Dallas will be a little empty without you.

Don't worry about Jean Hill folks.....She was from a generation that remembered the basic values of Faith in GOD/Truth/Family/Patroitism & Loyalty.
Even though she was VILIFIED by powerfull people, she stood by her convictions.
ps, She knows all the answers now. (WHO/WHY)
Thats why they call it..."Going to her Final Rewards". Thanks Jean.

I missed seeing you in Dallas in 1993, as you were ill. Your sincerity will live on! We will have some pleasant surprises for you next time we all meet up. Take Care.

I met Jean while in Dallas during the filming of "JFK"; as the replica of the X-100 which I built was being used in the film. I found her to be an extraordinarily friendly person who made you feel that you had known her for years. Those of us interested in the life of President Kennedy and the tragedy in Dallas have lost a true friend.

It was a real pleasure to have met Jean. I was most impressed by the force of her personality and the strength of her conviction. She certainly never hesitated in stating her opinions. I always ask people what they think about witnesses that they knew. Though some disagreed with her all spoke highly of her character. It was an honor to meet Jean. Though circumstance gave her a unique role in history it was her fortitude that compelled her to seek answers to that day in 1963. May God bless Jean Hill.

Jean hill: 1931 - 2000
A teacher who can arouse a feeling for one single good action, for one single good poem, accomplishes more than he who fills our memory with rows on rows of natural objects, classified with name and form.
Goethe

The Lady In Red
We lost a special person this year in Jean Hill. An outgoing, deeply feeling woman, Jean was a strong witness for conspiracy in the JFK assassination.

Always dressed in red, Hill would speak at student gatherings and attend JFK assassination events. Fearlessly, Hill would tell each interviewer, "All I know is I heard more than three shots and at least one of them came from behind the fence at the top of the knoll."
