Before a crowd at Everett School District headquarters, Jan Jensen placed a lei around Joe Hofman’s neck. Headed to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., with a plan to study international affairs, Hofman was described as a “well-rounded” student who’d been on Cascade’s swim, dive and tennis teams.

Congratulations Joseph!

Brett’s Run 2018 Slideshow

 

Check out this slide show/video made with the amazing photos taken by Liz and Don Healy!  The presentation ends with two photos of Jim Ruck, a friend, neighbor, and loyal Coug, who passed away in November.  Jim last completed the run 3 years ago when he was 86 years old!  This past year, at age 89, it took everything Jim had to attend the event and it meant the world to the Jensens.

14 Years of Turkeys to Families with CHS Food Drive

The Cascade High School Holiday Food Drive is an amazing event! Students learn the value in giving and investing in their community, and in helping out those in need during the holidays. For many students, helping pull off this food drive is a favorite high school experience.

The Jensens make it even more special with their turkey donation each year, adding a turkey (18-20 lbs each) to the food donation for each family.

Thanks for help with Brett Jensen Memorial run fundraiser

The Herald, LETTERS,  Saturday, September 8, 2018 1:30am

The Brett Jensen Memorial Walk and Run 9 was held Aug. 25 at Legion Memorial Park in North Everett. The skies cleared and the smoke disappeared, which made for a wonderful gathering of family, friends, Cascade High School athletes and coaches, and community members. There were treats for the dogs, a clown for the kids, and Starbucks coffee and Top Pot doughnuts for the adults. Some participants ran, some walked, and some just hung out and visited.

We would like to sincerely thank all of the participants, the volunteers, the business sponsors, and the silent auction donors for their generosity and support of this event. Also, we appreciate the Everett Parks and Recreation Department and the City of Everett for helping make the process of putting on this event go smoothly.

All proceeds go into our scholarship fund which allows us to grant awards to deserving high school seniors to assist them in their pursuit of higher education at a vocational technical college, a community college or four-year university. These scholarships are given through Cascade High School and the Rotary Club of Everett. Since its inception, the Brett Jensen Scholarship Foundation has awarded nearly $170,000.

Please save the date, August 24, 2019, for next year’s event.

Don, Janice and Megan Jensen
