Jeff Jensen Death, Obituary – Jeffrey J. Jensen passed away at his home in Salt Lake City in a quiet and peaceful manner. Marjorie Sutherland and Floyd B. “Shum” Jensen welcomed their second of three sons into the world on July 28, 1949, in Salt Lake City. He was the middle child. He spent his childhood in the Highland Park neighborhood and was an avid baseball player, a love that has followed him into adulthood from the time he played in youth leagues. He received his education at Highland High School, where he was a standout on the baseball team that won the state championship in 1966.
Jeff received a scholarship to play baseball at the University of Utah, where he also became a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity, making him the third member of his family to join the organization. After completing his undergraduate studies, he went on to acquire a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Utah College of Law. His undergraduate degree was in political science.
Jeff worked in the title sector for 43 years, during which time he established Landmark Title Company and served as its president. In addition to his work as an escrow officer and licensed title examiner, he was involved in the process of underwriting and closing on residential and commercial projects in the state of Utah and throughout the Rocky Mountain region. He was a member of the Salt Lake County Bar Association, the Utah State Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.
In addition, he was a member of the Salt Lake Board of Realtors and the Utah Land Title Association. From 1990 to 1991, he served as chairman of the Real Property Section of the Utah Bar Association, and from 1994 to 1995, he served as president of the Utah Land Title Association. That man was a member of the S.J. Quinney College of Law Alumni Board of Trustees, where he also held the position of president from 2002 to 2003. In 2005, he was honored as Alumnus of the Year for his achievements.
His accomplishments were significant; nevertheless, nothing compares to the love and dedication he had for his wife of 48 years, as well as the love and dedication he had for his children, grandchildren, and the many friends he had. He maintained a healthy equilibrium between his professional life and his passion for exploring new places by adhering to the credo “work hard and play hard.” Hiking in Utah’s mountains and deserts, playing golf, running marathons, and spending time with his family and friends in his two favorite destinations, San Francisco and Sun Valley, Idaho, were all activities that he looked forward to on a regular basis.
He also enjoyed going on a number of camping and river trips. He was always generous with both his time and his advice, and he had the knack of making everyone feel as though they were the most important individuals in the room and their worries were the most important topics to address. He was always generous with both his time and his advice. People will remember him for his kindness, his honesty, his generosity, and his ability to always start with love, and his unwavering commitment to making a list of pros and cons on a yellow legal pad.
Jeff is survived by his devoted wife, Mary Anne “Beth” Armstrong; son, Josh; daughters, Kate (AJ) Belcher and Anna (Brandon) Wicks; daughter-in-law, Molly McLaughlin; five of the most incredible grandchildren, Henry, Abby, Evie, Grace, and Chloe; brothers, Mike (Lynn) and Tom; and sister-in-law, Mary Ann “Beth” Armstrong. Jeff passed away on April 15, 2019.
