Kreg Owners' Community

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!!!

Jens was a great member of the Community, and always contributed in positive and meaningful ways. His presence here, his advice, and his insight will be greatly missed. Our thoughts will be with his family during this difficult time. Godspeed Mr. Jensen.

 I am really sad today to find out a great guy, a great member of our community family will be deeply missed.

 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.”

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
