ALFRED JENSEN III Obituary
ALFRED JENSEN III Alfred Paul Jensen III, known universally as Pete, passed away in Sunrise Hospital, Las Vegas, Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012. Pete survived a heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery, but died three days later, surrounded by family and friends. He was most recently the director of construction at South Point Hotel Casino, but for over 40 years, he established a remarkable construction portfolio in Nevada, Hawaii, Colorado, Washington state, Texas, and Alaska, and in Mexico, Australia, Singapore and elsewhere in the South Pacific. Vast hotels stand as monuments to Pete's energy and skill across both hemispheres and millions of square miles. Since 1988, he was also the president of The Minesen Company, and co-owner and operator of the 191-room hotel on Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. The Inn at Schofield Barracks accommodates service members and their families and after attending Oregon State University, Pete himself served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1966 to 1969, where he represented the Corps at basketball and football. Pete Jensen was a remarkable man in many respects, but probably his most striking quality was his overwhelming desire to help others achieve their full potential. Pete had an enormous heart, sadly quite literally and his cheerful enthusiasm and his irrepressible humor will be missed by close friends and loved ones across the world. He is survived by his brother, Louie; his sisters, Patty and Becky; his son, Max; his fiancee, Andi, and her children; and many friends and colleagues who have benefited from his wise counsel. Pete was a donor. Thanks to Pete two people will now have sight, over 50 people benefited from bone transplants, another 50 from skin grafts and further procedures were planned. Pete will be cremated. In lieu of a memorial service, donations are invited to the Pete Jensen Jacob Kuykendall Memorial Fund, in accordance with Pete's fervently stated wishes. Pete's passion over the past 11 years has been to make sure that Jacob received the special medical and educational support he needed and this fund will both honor his wishes and strive to ensure that Pete's plans are still realized. Donations may be made to the "Pete Jensen Memorial Fund" at any US Bank, Account No. 153 755 439 400; or you may send checks made payable to the order of "Pete Jensen Memorial Fund" to the Inn at Schofield Barracks, c/o Pauline Barney, 563 Kolekole Ave., Wahiawa, HI 96786.
