A diverse group of men will get this year’s Thomas Jefferson Foundation medals.  Attorney Ken Feinberg will get the Thomas Jefferson law medal.  Feinberg helped to negotiate compensation for the victims of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, a 2007 massacre on the campus of Virginia Tech, the BP oil spill of 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico, and the Boston Marathon bombing last April. Former U.S. Senator Jim Webb (pictured) will receive the Thomas Jefferson citizen leadership award. Webb was a U.S. Navy secretary and a best-selling author before his 2006 campaign for the Senate. Toyo Ito of Tokyo is getting this year’s architecture medal. All three will be honored at a dinner next month at Monticello and lunch at UVA’s Rotunda. They will also speak at various venues a couple of days before Thomas Jefferson’s birthday.
