71482 Jennamarie is an asteroid. It was discovered on the 28 January 2000 by Spacewatch at Kitt Peak.

It is named after Jennifer Marie Mayhew (b. 1981), a Cayuga Indian born in Ontario, now resident in Texas and renowned for her generosity, as a teenager helped disabled children ride horses. Named by her husband of six years, though absent in the military for most of that time, to recognize all families who are separated by war.[1]
