August 9, 1953 - February 15, 2015
Stephen Jensen is remembered in several ways: as a father, a son, a brother, a boyfriend, a friend, a writer, and a leader. Overall, Steve is remembered as a passionate person with a big heart, a lively spirit, and many outstanding qualities. His pride and joy were his children, Jordan and Stephanie, ages 24 and 22. He was glad that he was able to provide them with a college education and that he lived to see both of them graduate. Besides his children, Steve is survived by mother, Madeleine Jensen of FL, brothers, Scott (wife, Cheryl) and Stuart (wife, Laura) Jensen of CT, sisters, Susan and Sandra of FL, and girlfriend of 15+ years, Roxanne Milton.
Growing up in Connecticut, Steve was one of five children. After graduating from college with a degree in journalism, Steve began his career as a newspaper reporter. He later switched to the field of proposal writing/management, which he successfully pursued for the remainder of his life. He was a Fellow, and highly regarded member, of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) to which he donated his time as a committee chairperson for 16 years. After moving to Dallas in 1999, Steve was very active in the local tennis community and held many leadership positions in the Dallas Racquet Club, including three years as president.
We celebrate Steve’s life. We celebrate Steve as a loving person, a devoted son and father, and always loyal to his family. We celebrate Steve’s dedication to a career that he loved. We celebrate Steve’s active participation in his areas of interest. We celebrate Steve’s many talents, including as an adept tennis player. We celebrate his faith in God and that he will be with Him for eternity. We celebrate the many people that Steve affected, and by whom he will be lovingly remembered.
