LCol Hampson, words cannot fully express the sorrow I feel after learning about the death of your wife. When I was told the news it truly broke my heart. Lisa was such an amazing light in the world, and a truly remarkable person. I wish I had had the opportunity to get to know her better but, our freedom of the City parades and the planning of them, were maybe the funniest memories I have with the Army to date. I'll miss bumping into her at the mess and spending the afternoon laughing and carrying on. It is indeed sad to part ways with someone so sincere. OCdt.

Oh, my God, I couldn't believe it when I saw the news. A young woman in her prime. My memories Lisa are on the Cabot Trail Relay Race in about 2006 and as a noon hour running partner from the Minto Bldg.

Dear Jim and Family Kama and I just heard the sad sad news and our hearts go out to you at this most difficult time. We're still in shock. I will always remember Lisa as a great person and friend. We go way back to Engineer Phase Training days. Good times. Our paths didn't often cross, but I am so proud to have known her, to hear of her many accomplishments, and how dearly she was loved.

My sincere condolences to Lisa's family. I grew up with Lisa from grade school. Many fun times roller skating, hanging out. Never wore socks in the dead of winter, always loved her cats and many gerbils. Rip lisa

For over 30 years, Lisa and I were what I call “Sisters in Arms”. We ran together (literally and figuratively) while she was at Royal Roads and I was at Camosun College and University of Victoria. I know that she considered my parents’ place a safe escape from the rigors of being part of the first class of females to enter First Year at ‘Roads’. My parents always wanted to know where she was headed and how she was doing once she left Victoria. Lisa always loved to tell the story of the time she was giving me a lift into Reserves and there was a strange wobble as she was driving her Spyder. I told her to pull over quick so I could call my Dad to confirm if he had tightened all the wheel nuts after working on her brakes… She also loved to tell the tale of out trip to Vancouver in her sports car and our adventure dealing with a late snow storm on the hills of the UBC campus. Lisa was the person I called while in transit through Kingston in 1987, once she transferred to RMC and later that year when I visited her at home during Christmas. We touched base as she went off to her posting in Halifax. We re-engaged after we met up unexpectedly in Bermuda for the Daniel’s Head 10K (as the Station was shutting down). We lost touch until around 2004 when she applied for a Reserve position in the organization where I was employed (now known as CFINTCOM). We spent more time together in 2005 when I was working 2 Int Platoon (now 7 Int Company) which she had transferred to upon her move to Ottawa. I started out Navy while she was Air Force with different occupations but, somehow, we both ended up Army with the same occupation. We didn’t have to talk to each other weekly to know that we could rely on each other for assistance in time of need… I feel honoured to have called her friend and ‘Sister in Arms’ for the past 30 plus years.

I had the good fortune of serving with Major Lisa Hampson in Ottawa. She made the impossible seem simple, and never failed to lighten the room with her good humour. Perhaps most importantly, she taught me that serving as a citizen-soldier is a true privilege - but one of her many lessons that I intend to pass along in the years to come. Rest in peace, Lisa. We will remember.

Dear Jim and family, it is with tremendous sadness that we learned of Lisa's passing. Having worked with her at both CDI and DGME, I was always amazed at her tremendous spirit, adaptability and most of all, her ability to light up a room with her sheer energy. She was one of the most engaging and dedicated individuals I have known and she served as a great example to all of what can be accomplished. She served her country, and all of us, with distinction, regardless of cap badge or civilian attire. Her friendly smile will be sorely missed, but she will be fondly remembered.

I'm so very sorry to hear about Lisa. We worked together on one of her DND contaminated sites for 6 years and she was always a voice of reason throughout it with her pragmatic approach. I will fondly remember her amazing home-made jam and our trips to the RPIC conferences - particularly the regional conference in Halifax where she had the band at the Lower Deck serenade me with a round of Happy Birthday during the wee hours of the morning. Lisa was one of a kind and I will truly miss her. Please accept my heart-felt condolences on her loss. Lisa Tomlinson

The Calnan clan join you, Jim and family, both military and traditional, in mourning the loss of a remarkable lady. Lisa was my friend and could always be counted on for advice and sage council as well as huge hugs and lopsided grins! Her passing especially hurts as Jim; you are one of my closest friends and confidants. I cannot imagine how you feel right now! I will always hold close the care you and Lisa showed me when I was in ICU a number of years ago. Your compassion and kindness knew no bounds. Hugs to you and prayers for Lisa... knowing her she has already cleared the route to the Pearly Gates of all IEDs and is enjoying a good glass of wine with our heavenly Father! Ubique! Mike

Started off as a Beaver, I’m glad you trail-blazed to the Silver Star, because in the Dark Side, we need people who are courageous enough to shed some light, to be a voice, to enlighten the decision-makers with the Truth. Well done. And when you were not on parade leading your unit, or leading government engineering projects, you were still a loving mother and wife, and a dear friend to many. You hid illness well as your aura was consistently abundant in enthusiasm and inspiration. Honoured to call you my friend. My thoughts and prayers to your family who you often spoke of with pride and a beaming smile. RIP Lisa. M

There are not enough words to express the sadness I have for her passing and the gratitude that I have for her life. Major Hampson was best officer that I've ever had in my ten years of service. She always did her best to promote and protect her troops. She was a true leader, through and through. It is with a heavy heart to think that I will not hear another one of her amusing stories or have her share some much needed wisdom. She will forever be 7 Int Coy's matriarch. My most heartfelt condolences go out to her parents, children, and husband.
