    Obituary: Wesley Jensen

    Wesley Jensen, a former Research Associate in Medicine and a scientist at the University for 25 years, died June 11 in Wild Rose, Wis. He was 68.

    Jensen had been a staff scientist in the Gastroenterology Section in Medicine from 1965, when he came to the University as a National Institutes of Health postdoctoral fellow, until his retirement in 1990.

    "Wesley is remembered by numerous Gastroenterology fellows, graduate students and colleagues as a patient teacher of laboratory skills and for his generosity with his time and support, for his scholarly interests, and especially for his humor," said Merry Bolt, Senior Research Associate in Medicine.

    Jensen received his B.A. in 1951 from the University of Minnesota and his Ph.D. in 1965 from the University of Birmingham, England.

    He is survived by his wife, Neville Streiff, and seven sisters, three nephews and a niece.
