In Loving Memory

Devin James Jensen

March 31, 2002 – June 4, 2021

Devin James Jensen, a beloved son, brother, and friend, passed on to the next phase of his journey on June 4, 2021.

Devin was born to James and Janet Jensen on March 31, 2002 in Hinsdale, Illinois. He lived in the Chicago suburbs until he was 13 years old when his father got a job that moved the family to the Houston Texas area. Unsure about the move at first, he quickly made Texas his home, surrounding himself with friends from church and teammates from his soccer and lacrosse teams. He grew to love the lone star state, country music, and even owned a cowboy hat!

Devin was a 2020 graduate of Clear Springs High School in League City, Texas, where he played defensive center back on the varsity soccer team and midfielder for the lacrosse team. In 2020, he earned Texas Bay Area Lacrosse's Heart and Hustle Award. Going forward, the club's Most Valuable Player award will be named in his honor. He recently completed his freshman year at Brigham Young University-Idaho where he was studying to become a mechanical engineer, like his father.

Devin loved Manchester United, staying active through lacrosse and soccer, his mother's Mexican food, joking with his siblings, visiting his grandparents in Branson, Missouri, and spending time outdoors on vacation. He was most recently working part-time and helping his parents get their house ready to sell. He enjoyed working on the house with his father and learning new skills.

On the threshold of adulthood, Devin left us all far too soon. Of the many ways we will all feel this loss is not knowing who he would become. Of the many gifts Devin left us is how he made people feel. He had an infectious laugh and a crooked smile. He was kind, a peacemaker, a hard worker, a loyal and devoted friend, a protective brother, and a caring son. He was the best at making people happy and giving the gift of time to everyone.

Devin is survived by his parents, James and Janet (Peters) Jensen of Friendswood, Texas; his brother, Ethan; and his sisters, Kayli and Alyssa. He also leaves his grandparents A. Clair and Josephine Jensen of Branson, Missouri and Brian and Ubalda Peters of Oak Lawn, Illinois. He is survived by many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends who will miss him dearly.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Friday, June 11, 2021 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1802 Gunwale Dr., Houston, TX 77062, with President Quinn Larson officiating.

In lieu of flowers, a scholarship fund has been set up in Devin's name on Venmo at Devin_Jensen_scholarship. Your pin verification number will be 2588.

    I loved being greeted by his wide smile as he would eagerly tell me about his latest life adventure or game. I loved his great energy for living life.

  2. My deepest condolences for your son. I played lacrosse with him for two years and I can't even express how much heart and spirit he had for the game. He was always striving to be the best on the field. He was a phenomenal lacrosse player but he was an even better friend. I'm gonna miss you buddy.

  3. My deepest and sincerest sympathies for all of the Jensen/Peters family. May God bless and comfort all of you at this time and in the days and months to come.

    Janet and family,
    I cannot express how my heart aches for you. Sorry we cannot make it to the funeral. I also didn't want to overwhelm you. We are here in Plano if you need anything at all.
    Love,
    Jerard, Valerie, Amira and Caira Jurinak

  5. Janet and James and family,
    Our hearts go out to you on the loss of Devin. The mystery of God's plan for all of us can be hard to accept especially when one of our young family member is taken from us. We have to be thankful that we have enjoyed the years that Devin blessed us with his smile and love. May Devin's memories remain within in our hearts and never be forgotten. Thank you, Janet and James, for bringing Devin into this world so that we had an opportunity to enjoy his gifts to us.
    Love,
    Linda and Fred in Florida

  6. He was always there to give advice both on the soccer team, and I'm classes. His focus was to see people happy and to help in any way he could. Devin was easily one of the kindest people to walk this earth.
