Alan & Kathy Jensen
Alan was born in Redwood Falls, MN and grew up in Brainerd learning to hunt and fish from his father. He joined the Air Force after high school where he served four years in the Vietnam War. Alan retired from a family road construction business after 33 dedicated years. Kathy was born and raised in Brainerd and spent four years abroad in Germany. For 17 years, she was an Insurance Coordinator at the Brainerd Medical Center. After which Kathy and her sister, Nancy, finally fulfilled their dreams of owning a home décor gift shop. Not only did they enjoy helping others furnish their homes, but they also enjoyed the perk of redecorating their own homes… many, many times during those 16 years. :) Alan and Kathy met through friends and were married 4 months later! Their retirement has allowed them ample time to visit their grandchildren in Wisconsin and also escape the cold winters by heading south to the sunny shores of Florida! Kathy enjoys the beach while Alan collects sea shells and their sweet yellow lab, Maggie, doesn’t mind the warmer temperatures either. Alan and Kathy will be celebrating their 40 year anniversary shortly after the marriage of their son!
