To all of the Members of the Kreg Jig Community
IT IS WITH SADDENED HEART THAT I ADVISE YOU THAT OUR BROTHER AND FRIEND OF THE KREG JIG COMMUNITY HAS PASSED AWAY.
ON MONDAY MARCH 04 JENS JENSEN DIED OF A SUDDEN MASSIVE HEART ATTACK ON HIS WAY TO THE HOSPITAL IN EVERETT WASHINGTON. THIS WAS A SUDDEN OCCURANCE AND NOT EXPECTED.
Jens and I became good friends trading woodworking thoughts and ideas for many months.
I last heard from Jens the weekend before his death and then no further comments were sent to me. His last email to me was cheerful and happy and spoke of no health issues. He was totally involved with his wood work. After a couple days he did not answer my e-mails and I was beginning to wonder if his ailing mother had passed away. I never expect this sad news.
His wife Barb let me know of his death tonight 03-12-2013.
I am letting the community know so that thoes whom were close to Jens will know of his passing. I know he many friends in the Kreg Jig Community and his love for woodworking will be remembered. He will be greatly missed. Jay Boutwell
Sorry to hear the sad news jay , my sympathy to the family a sad day.
In memory of my friend Jen
When I first came to the community Jen was one of the first persons to make me his friend and for the last 5 years we worked to gather on projects talk over the phone and share e-mails. He was one of these people no matter what he was doing he would put it down and would help you. That is the Jen Jenson I know and well remember it has been my honor to know some one like him.
Jens will be sadly missed but fondly remembered, My thoughts go out to his wife and family. I know he is one of the several members that have encourage me in my pursuit in woodworking.
JENS will be missed by me and many other wood workers , always willing to help others ,thoughts go out to wife and family , JIM!!!

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family; and I will miss his comments and projects. I will always remember the things he shared with the community in using reclaimed wood and the different projects which inspired me in thinking on trying different things that I found I could do. I like to thank Jay for letting us know about his passing. Jens, May God Bless You And Keep You.
Jens was one of my first friends here in the Community. He was very funny and was always there to lend a hand or float an idea by you. He will be missed.
And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
