Michael Jenson passed away March 25, 2011 at his home surrounded by family after a valiant fight with cancer.
Michael truly enjoyed his 20+ years as a Deputy State Fire Marshal, though his true passion in life was his family, camping, hunting, and fishing. He especially enjoyed being in the woods with his son and hunting buddy Mikey. He had a contagious smile and was a friend to all he had the opportunity to meet.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother Murel Kirk Benson and Mauna Frandsen Benson and a brother, Mark Howard Jenson.
He is survived by his wife, Kristine Jenson; daughters Tammy (Rod) Gines, Katherine (Nephi) Thompson, and Kristy (Pete) Brannon; son Michael (Ashlee) Jenson; sisters Wendy Jenson (Sterling) Stubbs, Kathleen Benson and Barbara Benson; brothers Murel (Lawan) Benson; Barry (Rhonda) Benson and Carl Benson.
