Remembering a Volunteer
In memory of Tom Jensen
April 11, 1951 – June 6, 2018
Tom was a highly accomplished conductor, musician, radio personality and entertainer. He believed, as we do, that every child deserves music and beauty in their lives. Several months ago, Tom began helping young cellists and bassists at El Sistema become more confident on their instruments. He sat with them, bass in hand, side by side, as they played wrong notes, tried again, and found the triumph of making music together. He endeavored, every week, to set an example and inspire the children of El Sistema to work hard and dream big dreams for themselves. May his impact on the children be his enduring tribute and legacy.
Memorial reception will be from 6-8pm on Monday, June 18, 2018 at Olinger Crown Hill, Pavilion of Reflection. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donation be made to El Sistema Colorado, 789 Sherman Street, Suite 250, Denver 80203 or www.elsistemacolorado.org/donate
