Bob made the 2007 Peru trip a marvelous experience by the love and care he showed to the people of Sicuani and Yanaoca. "When we lose someone we love, they are no longer where they were before, now they are wherever we are."

My deepest sympathies to Dr. Jensen's family. I worked with Bob when he volunteered at Marillac Clinic for several years. He was as kind and compassionate as any doctor I've ever met. We will miss him greatly.
