Dan was the big brother of Val (Marjorie) Jensen and Clair (Erika) Jensen. His greatest joy in life was his family. He has five children, Lynette (Trent) Fordham, David (Tamara) Jen-sen, Audrey, Kathryn, and Michael Jensen (who is serving an LDS Mission in Oregon). His grandchildren, Kellie, Todd, Kelsie, Benjamin, and Hannah will miss him so much.
Dan was an active member of the LDS Church. He served many years as an assistant ward clerk. He retired after 34 years as a planner for Salt Lake County. Dan enjoyed woodworking, and being outdoors. He had a great sense of humor. Dan was a loyal U of U fan and had a great rivalry going with his brothers. He was a very wise and loving man. He was loved and admired by many. He will be missed tremendously.
