Our favorite and only surviving American toy steam engine manufacturer, Jensen Steam Engines, has lost it's second captain, Tom Jensen Jr, who passed away peacefully in the company of his family. He was surrounded by those who loved him.

Wishing him Godspeed in his journey to the other side.

Prayers go out to his family and friends during their time of profound sadness.

May he rest in peace for all eternity.

Gil

We have 2 different times he passed so will correct when we know for certain.

The good news is he went peacefully and not alone.

All respect due to one who kept the faith, and the company, going forward in difficult times.

No doubt he will be well missed.

Condolences to family and all friends!

  Sorry for the loss.  R.I.P. Tom, knowing that you and the Jensen family
brought joy to thousands over the decades.  Kudos.  Hopefully, Jensen
will still be making engines 100 years from now, carrying on and enhancing
the family legacy.

Sincerely,
Wayne
