Gary Jensen, passed away on September 11, 2020, at the age of 75 years.
A long-term resident of Grand Junction, Gary was born October 4, 1944 in Torrance, California.
A carpenter and home builder, Gary was a passionate follower of Jesus who dedicated his time and resources to serving in his local church and supporting charitable causes. He also loved the outdoors, fly fishing, reading and talking about the Bible, and studying prophetic texts.
