Robert P. Jensen
December 7, 2018
Bob started calling on our company 20 years ago as a outside vendor.
A true salesman from the start, he had a way to break down obstacles that would prevent you from buying, he did everything you asked of him to make the sale. Bob not only provided the product but the service also that goes with the sale. Along the way the two of us formed a friendship based on the business , " the Bears", food, cigars, and personal struggles.
I will miss Bob calling on us at the office, he would make contact writh evereveryone at the shop, it didn't matter if a sale was involved or not , he was out there promoting his company, spreading cheer, and goodwill from office to office. As he came down the hallway laughter would break out from each office, by the time he got to my office everyone knew Bob was in the house.
So Bob, tonight I will celebrate your life and our friendship , I will open the box of cigars I bought for you here in Honduras, sit on the veranda that over looks the mountains and the city of Tegucigala. With a glass of wine in one hand a cigar in the other I will bid you farewell,but you will never be forgotten!,,,, So long my good friend...
