Our prayers are with you all at this difficult time. Carmen was a wonderful person, this world will miss her bright spirit.


Carmen Jensen was one of the classiest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She lit a room up when she entered with her contagious, gorgeous smile. She always looked like a million bucks; her hair, not one strand out of place, her perfect posture, adorned with tasteful jewelry, and able to make even nursing scrubs look stylish. I had the pleasure of working with Carmen for 18 years at Midwest Allergy then again at UNMC in Allergy. We had great times together, often joking about how we would have known a patient as a child and then meet them again as an adult patient. Carmen was remembered by most of the people she had met because of the lasting impression she had made with them. She was kind, professional and respectful to everyone. Meeting so many allergy patients during her career as a nurse, she had an uncanny way of remembering people’s names and facts about their families. She made you feel important and you knew she cared. The way I figure it, she administered at least a half million allergy shots in her life, not to be surpassed by any other nurse, ever!!!!! Her greatest joy in life was her family. She spoke often of her dear mother. Her loving husband, Sam, brought her such happiness in life, and she would get so cheery just talking about him. Carmen was proud of her children and treasured the time she had with them. Her grandchildren that she adored, provided her so much delight, and she cherished each and every one of them. I admired Carmen as a coworker and a friend, and am so lucky to have known her. Eternal rest grant unto Carmen, oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. KC McCaslin
