    I am so sorry for your loss. I am a 1975 Graduate of Mr Jensen’s Autobody class at Northeast Reg. I consider myself very fortunate to have had such wonderful shop teachers that made such a positive impact on my life. I became a Collision Repair Instructor and later a Dept Head thanks to Mr J and had a wonderful thirty year career. I often run into former students as an Insurance Appraiser identifiable by the role of masking tape on their wrist and they all have a positive story how much Mr J impacted their lives. During basic training the Drill sergeants informed us we would remember our first grade teachers, our first love and our drill sergeants forever. I know I speak for my fellow students when I say Mr J will be forever a part of us.
