Joe Jensen, a longtime supporter and alumnus of Idaho State University, passed away on Wednesday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 79.
“Joe was dedicated to making other people’s lives better,” ISU alumni director Ryan Sargent said. “Joe embodies what it means to be an Idaho State Bengal.”
The Jensen Grand Concert Hall in the Stephens Performing Arts Center bears his name. Jensen and his late wife Cheryl’s generous support led to the completion of the facility, now known as one of the best performing arts venues on a college campus.
