Julie Mulstein’s article in The Herald, Wed, Aug 23, 2017:
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.
“I was just 2 years old when he passed away,” said Demars, 18, who on Monday was featured as The Herald’s Super Kid. “There’s no way I could have met him, but I’m so affected by his story. Everyone at Cascade is impacted. The Everett community is impacted.”……..
Sara Thomas is the 2017 recipient of Cascade High School’s Brett Akio Jensen Memorial Scholarship. Sara has proven herself in so many ways: community involvement, activity planner and participant at CHS, is a leader by example, “phenomenal and exceptional”. We are proud to award Sara Thomas $5000. She will be attending Boise State in the fall.

Each year Cascade High School students, staff and the very supportive community pull off an amazing food and toy drive to help needy families during the holidays. Food and toys are collected, then everything is organized. Volunteers shop for families the deliver the food and toys to the needy families.
We wanted to thank all of you once again for your support in helping make this year’s Walk and Run a huge success. You can see photos of the event taken by Liz and Don Healy on facebook by using the following links:
Brett’s Run/Walk 7 was another amazing day, thanks to all of you for supporting Brett’s Run/Walk and making it special. While we try our best to get around and personally greet and thank each and every one of you, we know we miss some people and we want to make sure you know how much we appreciate your support.
All of you, including; participants – (runners and walkers), helpers, workers, donors, sponsors, bidders, servers, cleaners, our starter and the committee members- keep this event important, fun and meaningful. We are able to raise money for the memorial scholarship fund, and also share stories and memories of Brett.
The Cascade High School Food Drive is an incredible event! Brett and Megan enjoyed their work with the food drive while in high school. For the past 10 years, the Jensens have continued to contribute to the CHS Food Drive, by donating turkeys for each family.
