A retired Marine Corps Colonel and naval aviator, Jensen completed his military service by serving as the Chief of the Marine Corps’ Behavioral Programs at the headquarters of the Marine Corps where he was responsible for developing and leading a portfolio of programs that included the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, Suicide Prevention, Domestic Violence Prevention and Response, Community Counseling Services, and Substance Abuse and Drug Demand Reduction Programs.

As a helicopter pilot, Jensen served in various assignments in operational units, participating in peace keeping operations in Somalia, noncombatant evacuation operations in Rwanda, Operation Southern Watch in Kuwait, and multiple combat operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Additionally, he served as an instructor and staff officer at The Basic School, as the Aide-de-Camp to the Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps, on the Joint Staff J-8, and as an Assistant Wing Commander.

Not only is Jensen a proud veteran himself, but he is also equally proud to be the son of a U.S. Army Vietnam veteran and the father of a currently serving Navy officer.
