(Dec. 30, 1928 - Oct. 29, 2017)

Don Jensen, 88, of Cody, died Oct. 29, 2017, at the Spirit Mountain Hospice House. Don was a resident of Cody for 47 years working as an attorney for Husky Oil Company until his retirement.

Born in Laramie in 1928 as a third generation Wyoming native, Don loved this state and was happy to have three more generations living here.

He was a graduate of the University of Wyoming and served in the U.S. Army.

Don’s passions were cross country skiing, Wyoming sports, gardening, and his family. He enjoyed time with his friends, hunting and attending football games in Laramie and Denver.

He was instrumental in starting and supporting both the Alpine and Nordic high school ski teams in Cody.

Don is survived by his wife of 63 years, Marilyn; five children — Jami, Dawni, Dane, Jennifer and Merry; eight grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and a brother, Willis.

A memorial service is planned for a later date. 

The family has requested that memorial gifts in Don’s name be sent to the Park County Nordic Ski Association, P.O. Box 2123, Cody, WY, 82414.

An online memorial is available at
