We Remember


June 23, 1970 — October 9, 2021

Neil Jensen, 51, passed away on October 9, 2021, at home surrounded by loved ones. He was the loving husband of Rachelle Jensen. While they knew each other for over 20 years, they were together for 10 years and married for 7 years.

Born on June 23, 1970, in Calgary, Alberta, he was the son of Lester-Ann Jensen and Gayle Jensen. Neil lived in Calgary and Lethbridge before moving to Kelowna in 1980, where he would make his home for the rest of his life. He graduated from Rutland Secondary School and would go on to pursue a career in stucco for the remainder of his life, which included a year of working abroad in Taiwan.

Neil was a member of numerous sports teams but felt equally at home travelling around the world with his wife and family. He will always be remembered for his loving nature, his genuine smile, and his care-free attitude; there wasn’t a soul close to Neil that wasn’t positively impacted by his presence. Neil was the epitome of goodness, and his tragic passing is truly a loss, not only to those closest to him, but also to all of mankind.

Neil is survived by his wife Rachelle Jensen; his stepson Jared Curry (Nadia Schober); his mother Lester-Ann Jensen; his two sisters, Dawn Ackroyd (Allan Ackroyd) and Gaylene Nelson (Duane Nelson); as well as his nieces and nephews: Taylor Ross (Britton Ross), Jordan Nelson, Sydney Muller (Nathan Muller), Jillian Conley (Chase Conley), and Peirce Ackroyd. Neil is predeceased by his father, Gayle Jensen.

The memorial service will be held on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2021, at 10:00 AM, IN THE TRINITY CHURCH GYMNASIUM, 1905 Springfield Rd, Kelowna, BC. For those unable to attend, please join the family online, by Livestream, https://youtu.be/Ltf0ORXv7pU.
