Jeffrey Howard Jensen, 44, of Burley, Idaho went home to be with his Savior on August 31, 2020. He is the son of Howard Gene Jensen and Ann Child Jensen. He attended schools in Burley and graduated from Burley High School in 1994.
From early on as a youngster he liked to play jokes on his family and later, his friends and co-workers to get a laugh. He worked at Wal-Mart for nearly 7 years. He will be missed by all of those that knew and loved him. Jeff was an amazing and talented artist, sometimes using both hands to draw at the same time. His drawings have always been treasures to his family. He also had a soft spot for all kinds of animals taking in all kinds of strays and nursing them back to health.
He was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He loved doing temple work for his ancestors and helping others with their work; and along with his mother, he attended the temple 4 times each week. He was a wonderful son to care for his parents most of his life.
He is survived by his parents, his sister, Tammy Len (Adrian) Barendregt and his favorite nephew, Jade A. Barendregt and Jade’s fiancé Cedar Bingham. And numerous cousins from both the Jensen and Child families. He was preceded in death by both sets of his grandparents.

I only knew Jeff through the temple. He always sat on the front row. He watched out for other patrons who came regularly and made sure they had a place to sit and all was well. Jeff had a great love for his mother and sometimes when we were changing rooms, I would see him reach out and give his mother a loving pat.
Jeff is free from all the trials of this world and i know he was greeted by the hundreds or thousands of people he helped through his temple work.
Know that I am thinking of the family at this time.

Dear Ann, I am so very sorry I was unaware of Jeffs passing until today. I can't imagine how difficult this is for you because of the support he gave you in taking you to the temple four days a week. You both are a great example of doing a great work that needed to be done. May you be blessed at this difficult time.
