The Passing of Jean Jensen

We fondly remember long time Cheley employee, Jean Jensen, who passed away July 29, 2014 in Salina, KS. She was 65. Jean was hired as a Cheley summer staff member in 1970 while a teacher of typing and bookkeeping in Canton, KS. In 1973, she joined the year round staff, eventually becoming the Registrar, HR Manager, Bookkeeper and Secretary. When Jean first arrived, there was no internet or fax. Her tools were a telephone, typewriter and duplicator, plus a meticulous paper trail to keep order of campers, staff and alumni. When not at the camp office, Jean was an avid sports fan of K-State, and Denver teams- Broncos, Nuggets and Rockies. In Jean fashion, she kept stats of every game on a steno pad. With hands never idle, her beautiful needlework projects were always close. Her friendly smile and phone voice were a favorite of all who knew her. We will miss Jean and her sincere contribution to the success of Cheley. For memorials or a note to her family: Ryan Mortuary, 137 North Eighth, Salina, KS 67401.
