Brett’s Run in The Herald

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.”……..
