MARLIN “COACH” JENSEN

Marlin “Coach” Jensen, 80, of North Bend, WA, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 7, 2017 at the Regency in North Bend. He was born in Wenatchee, WA to James and Elsie Jensen on July 27, 1937.

Marlin always loved history and baseball. He played and coached his whole life. He even played professionally. “Do you want to shake the hand of the man who hit a ball 500ft?” He loved coaching his grandson and watched him play almost every game.

Marlin was a teacher at Mount Si High School for 35 years. He coached baseball, girls softball, golf and even tennis. He liked to announce the football games – “He was pretty much tackled by everyone” and “There’s a hanky on the field”. Marlin will always be remembered by his one liners. He loved to make us all laugh.

Marlin is survived by his wife, Connie, of 59 years, daughter Traci, son Jerry, and grandson Nate. He has a twin borther, Martin Jensen (Thelma) in Covington and lots of nieces and nephews.

We’ve taken him out of retirement by willing his body to the U.W. Medical School, so he’s still teaching.

He was a great guy and will be truly missed. Alzheimers/Dementia took him from us, but he is whole again and walking with the Lord!

The family has decided not to do a public service.
