Though young in years, Frederick Jensen of Beaverton, Washington county has already won his spurs. He is a son
of N. P. and Elizabeth (Jorgensen) Jensen, and was born at Tyler, Minnesota, in 1892, where he received his primary
and secondary education. His father, who was a successful merchant, visited the Pacific coast in 1910, and being
much attracted to the country, he sold out his interests in Minnesota and removed with his family to Oregon, settling
at Junction City. He engaged in business for a time, but is at present touring Europe. Ambitious and energetic,
Frederick supplemented his high school training with a course in the law school of the University of Oregon, graduating
in 1912 with the degree of LL. B. He was admitted to the bar in the same year and opened an office in Portland,
beginning his practice immediately.
When America entered the World war Frederick Jensen volunteered, and entered the Officers Training Camp of the
United States Field Artillery. The armistice terminated his war duties, however, before he had been given opportunity
to match the record of his three brothers, all of whom arrived in France, and two of whom fought under the stars
and stripes for eighteen months. Returning to Portland, Mr. Jensen was chosen city attorney of Beaverton, Washington
county, and he is at present executing the duties of that position. He maintains offices in the Cady building at
Beaverton, and at 720 Board of Trade building in Portland, dividing his time between the two cities.
Mr. Jensen was married in 1914 to Miss Josephine Humiston, a native of Iowa, and a descendant of an old New York
family. They have two children: Donald Frederick and Winnifred Phoebe.
Fraternally Mr. Jensen is a Mason. His college fraternity is Phi Alpha Delta. Professionally he is accounted one
of the notable young lawyers of Oregon. He is an earnest student, an able speaker, and an aggressive and fearless
attorney, whom even old and experienced practitioners regard as an opponent worthy of their steel.
