In Memory of Pastor Dale Jensen

In sadness, we share the news that Pastor Dale Jensen died on Thursday, June 4, 2020.

Pastor Jensen was a retired local pastor who served in the Desert Southwest Conference. He was a graduate of Northern Illinois University and became a licensed local pastor in 1987. He began serving in the Desert Southwest Conference in 1988. He served at Pahrump Valley, NV: Pahrump Valley UMC and retired in 1993. Pastor Jensen is survived by his wife Dorothy who would have celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary on June 20th. Pastor Jensen was the first Lay Director of the Southern Nevada Walk To Emmaus.

Dale had great joy in ministry. His broad smile turned quickly to laughter as he would tell the stories of good news and excite people into the faith. Dale loved the Lord and loved the people and The United Methodist Church.

The burial will be scheduled at a future date at the Veterans Cemetery of Boulder City, NV.

Condolences may be sent to:
Mrs. Dorothy Jensen
5578 Casa Palazzo Court
Las Vegas, NV 89141

Remembering God’s word for us, we give thanks to God who gives us the victory over death through Jesus Christ.
With gratitude for the life and ministry of Pastor Dale Jensen, please hold his wife Dorothy, their children DeAnn and David, granddaughters and other family members and friends in prayer at this time.
