Thanks for all the support, we really appreciate it!
Last week was scholarship week. Two more Brett Akio Jensen Memorial Scholarships totaling $15,000 were awarded through the Rotary Club of Everett and Cascade High School.
Both recipients, Joe Hofman and Lily Sullivan, will soon be graduates of Cascade High School. Like Brett, both of these outstanding students love their family, their friends, and life. We are proud to continue Brett’s legacy by furthering their education.
Joe is the recipient of the Everett Rotary-Brett Jensen Scholarship which combined, is $10,000. He is heading to Georgetown University to study pre-law and is also going to be on the diving team.
Lily Sullivan is the recipient of the $5000 Brett Akio Jensen Memorial Scholarship. She will be attending Western Washington University, and is planning on majoring in special education. She exemplifies Brett’s heart and compassion.

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.

Brett Jensen would have turned 35 next week. A top student, ASB president and athlete in Cascade High School’s Class of 2001, he died the year after graduation. His life of achievement ended when he fell from a fraternity house near the University of Washington campus.
Zack Demars, another standout Cascade graduate, never had the chance to meet Jensen.
