Robert Jensen ’83S is a Crisis Management expert and Chairman of Kenyon International Emergency Services. Kenyon is a global leader in disaster recovery and handling disasters involving mass fatalities. Jensen served as the CEO for 18 years and has provided his expertise through writing Op-ed to media interviews from BBC, CNN, and Fox to name a few.
Jensen shared, “After spending most of my adult life responding to major disasters, both in the prep school and as a civilian I am switching gears and focusing on sharing the lessons learned. These disasters included OKC Bombing, Bali Bombings, Boxing Day Tsunami, 2010 Haitian Earthquake, Grenfell Tower Fire, 911 attacks, and sadly so many others. My husband and I have sold our international company Kenyon International Emergency Services to a UK-based public company. I have also written an op-ed for USA today, as well as different pieces for other publications.
My memoir, Personal Effects – What Recovering The Dead Teaches Me About Caring For The Living, was released on 28 September by Macmillan Publishers. Along with it, there is a series of print/audio/tv interviews. If you want to see what I am writing about you can see it on www.robertajensen.com.
I talk about my time at AFA in the book and noted several of the faculty (1981-1983 time frame) in the acknowledgments.
For our Farragut family, I am happy to send signed bookplates to you, send me a note at email@example.com.
Part of my next adventures are fun travel – boat, motorcycle, RV, and bike so I hope to see some of my old classmates and other alumni along the way!”
