Steven Louis Thompson

June 11, 1986January 12, 2018

Steven Louis Thompson, 31, died January 12 in New Orleans.

A native of New Orleans and resident of the city for most of his life, Steven spent most of his career as a logistics professional and operations coordinator in the environmental and oil industries in New Orleans. For part of his career, he was also a business analyst for a New Orleans tech start-up.

Steven was a graduate of Isidore Newman School and the University of Mississippi. At Ole Miss, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Managerial Finance, earned academic honors and was active in campus life as a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity and multiple clubs and societies, and as a community volunteer. At Newman, he was a member of the tennis team and participated in many programs and student activities. Steven also was a graduate of Trinity Episcopal School. Over his lifetime, he made many friends – and treasured their thoughtfulness, trust and companionship.

Kind and intelligent, with a clever sense of humor and a penchant for spirited conversation that endeared him to many, Steven’s love for his family, friends and pets was deep, and his passion for fishing and hunting was strong.

Steven is survived by his parents, Ann and Shaw Thompson, and his brothers, Michael and William, all of New Orleans, along with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by a brother, Kenneth Barnshaw Thompson IV; a sister, Jon Bannon Thompson; and his grandparents, Aline Fried Thorpe Anderson, John Bannon Thorpe, Marilee Arnaud Thompson and Kenneth Barnshaw Thompson, Jr.

Private services were held Jan. 15.

Kindly omit sending flowers to the family. Those wishing to make donations in Steven’s memory are asked to send them to Bridge House at 4150 Earhart Blvd, New Orleans, La., 70125, or the charity of their choice.
