Mikey loved riding his many motorcycles, fishing, waterskiing, and just being outdoors. He was truly the “captain of his own ship.” Mikey was a free spirit who did what he wanted and he had the best fun doing it. He brought the most smiles to everyone around him in the process.
Mikey was happiest when he was with his family. His nieces, nephew, siblings, and cousins brought him so much joy. When he was younger, he took many trips up north with extended family that created amazing memories.
Mikey is survived by his mom, Jackie Jensen; siblings Jason (Christine) Jensen, Tony (John) Jensen, Ethan (Ash Gaines) Jensen, and Evan Jensen; nieces and nephew: Morgan, D.C., Taylor, Kylee, Lila, and Payton. He is further survived by many other relatives and countless friends.
