TO Mike, Deborah, Larry and Tom, I did not know Mr. Jenson. However, your family is a testament to the man he was. He raised a wonderful family. Your Mom, Patricia must be so proud. As a sister of a former FDNY 911 victim, I have a great respect for NYPD. My Uncles and Grandparents were all NYPD. They are to be honored as one of our own always and forever. We will celebrate the life of Mr. Jenson, together. Sincerely, Christine Keating
