July 2nd, 1936 – March 13th, 2016
We are deeply saddened about the recent passing of longtime Board of Trustee member Jens Jorgensen. Jens was a dynamic and passionate community leader who served on our Board for thirteen years in a variety of capacities. In his professional life he was an admired Professor of Engineering at the University of Washington. His outstanding contributions to his field were recognized in 2006 by the National Academy of Engineering. In his personal life he was a beloved father, grandfather, and husband of Glenda Jorgensen. Jens was an avid skier, and actually served as an interpreter at the 1960 Winter Olympics. The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. wishes to extend our deepest condolences to the Jorgensen family. He will be deeply missed. We value the time we had with him and the impact he made on so many in our community as an educator and community leader.
