Doug Jensen

Douglas Howard Jensen died unexpectedly on May 8, 2017 at his home in southeastern Harding County at the age of 63.

Doug is survived by his wife, Myla; his children, Stephanie Good, Brian Jensen, and Chad Jensen; numerous grandchildren; his mother, Donna Jensen; his sisters, Dee Dee Page, Rhonda Page, LuAnn Schroeder, and Nancee Kinghorn; his brother, Jeff Jensen; and many wonderful friends and neighbors.

He was preceded in death by his father, Howard Jensen.

Doug was born on February 27, 1954 in Rapid City, SD to Howard and Donna Jensen. He moved to the ranch full time in 1970, shortly after his marriage to Myla.  Over the next 47 years on the ranch, the couple welcomed three children into their home.  His children remember his dry sense of humor and love of the area.

Anybody that knew Doug was well aware of his distaste for public gatherings like weddings/graduations/funerals, as well as his intense love of Accuweather, Fox News and cooking fried chicken.

As per his wishes, no funeral is planned, but a reception will be held at the JX Ranch on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at approximately 2:00 pm. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Doug’s life. 

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Sorum/Reva Volunteer Fire Department 14573 Dog Creed Pl, Reva, SD 57651 or Prairie City Volunteer Fire Department 12696 SD Hwy 75, Lodgepole, SD 57640.

The family would like to thank all the friends and neighbors for their thoughts and condolences.
