JANET I JENSEN Janet I Jensen of Honolulu died in Straub Hospital on October 31, 2015. An enthusiastic adventurer, she left us for her aloha trip with the love of her life Greg Tully and beloved close friends at her side. Janet was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, and grew up on the family ranch near Blackfoot, Idaho, where she won national awards with her 4H work. Pursuing her love for adventure, she moved to Honolulu when she was 18, took a waitress job, and entered the University of Hawaii, eventually opening and running her own successful CPA business, where she practiced until her retirement in 2014. Besides working at her practice, she taught at the Honolulu Board of Realtors, and the Hawaii Association of Public Accountants, as well as supporting numerous charities. While Hawaii remained Janet's home base, she travelled extensively, with focus on the exotic, adventurous, and sometimes grueling---climbing mountains, trekking, hiking, sailing, and always investigating the unusual or obscure. Many of these adventures were with her companion Greg, but some also turned into girl trips or expeditions, all of which resulted in a treasure trove of tales to tell. In addition to her lifelong companion Greg Tully and their hanai family of feral cats, Janet is survived by her sister Susan Singer Jensen (Paul) of Santa Barbara, Ca., her brother Jerrold Jensen (Nannette) of Visalia Ca. niece Jennifer Marcou, nephew Michael Jensen, her beloved clients, and a far-reaching, large, and many-branched extended family. As a result of her full life, her extended ohana was wide-spread and varied, and she will be sorely missed by all whose lives she touched. No services. Private scattering of ashes. Celebration of Life at a later date. Donations may be made to your favorite charity in her honor. Aloha, Janet. You lived life to the fullest.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
