Born in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 18, 1959. Tim passed away in his home with his wife and a childhood best friend by his side. He was a loving friend, father and grandfather. In the prime of his life, he was a talented carpenter. He lead crews of construction workers in the updating of multiple Qwest facilities among many other large scale projects. He was always respected by his peers for his strong work ethic, fairness and good demeanor. Tim had a giant heart and a great sense of humor. He loved being outdoors, especially fishing and hunting. He was an involved father that took pride in raising his son, Tim. The two spent countless days together in the mountains and marshes hunting, or on the lake fishing. His love for fishing took him to Manila, Utah for the last years of his life. He spent many of his days in retirement at Flaming Gorge. He was a very kind and generous man, who would give the shirt off his back to help someone in need. He will be sorely missed by those who loved him. He leaves behind his dog Copper. Tim loved his dog so much that wherever he went, Copper was never more than a step behind.

He is survived by his son, Tim (Mary), two granddaughters, Catherine and Claire, whom he absolutely loved and adored; his wife, Julie; his brothers, Rick (Marie) and Dennis (Amber); sister, Susan; as well as an endless circle of friends.

He is preceded in death by his Mother, Joyce Brijs, Father, Marcus Jensen and his brother, Reid.

Tim's wishes were to not have services, but rather to be remembered for good times shared. If so inclined, please share stories and memories in the guestbook. We hope you are at peace, Tim. We love you and will miss you everyday until we are together again.

My heart and condolances go out to the Jensen family. Tim and I had become very close friends. He had a heart of gold and had given me a opportunity of a life time to which I will be eternally gratiful for and have the utmost respect for him.. We had some really great times together and these memories I will always cherish. I kept on saying the next time I go to manila Im going to stop in and say hello but unfortunately he was called home before I had made my way back there. Thats something I will always regret because I wanted to tell him what his friendship meant to me . so that I knew that he knew how I felt about him and I really wanted to thank him for all hes done for me. Rest in peace my friend. You will never be forgotten. I hope we meet again as Im sure I wont be far behind you. With Love ahd Respect, your friend Susie
