Jensen, Tucker Sterling Age 29, of Minneapolis. Passed away peacefully March 11, 2019 surrounded by his loving family after an almost three year battle with lymphoma. Preceded in death by grandfathers Robert Jensen and G. David "Buddy" Knutson, Grandmother Judy Knutson (née Riggle), uncle David Anthony "Tony" Knutson and cousin Michael Dixon. Survived by adoring parents Michael and Kristi (Knutson) Jensen, the best big sister/Irish twin on the planet Mikaela Jensen, Grandmother Neva Jensen Wickstrom and Grandfather Carroll Wickstrom; aunts Kerrie Haley, Debbie (Dale) Runkle, Toni (Reggie) Cammon, Peggy Erickson, Jessica (Charlie) Dixon; cousins Kerrissa (Jared) and Judah Keymer, Preston, Juliana and Zoe Haley, Kirsten (Daniel) and Henry Karlsson, Stephen (Megan) Runkle, Olivia (Cole) Cammon/Newland, Isaiah Cammon, Jennifer (Mark) and Ethan Pendergrass, Veronica and Sean Dixon; his band Dirt Train and friends, musicians and rabble rousers too numerous to mention. A 2008 graduate of Robbinsdale Armstrong High School, what Tucker lacked in love for school he more than made up for in a love for learning. Constantly intellectually curious like his mother and drop-dead charming like his father, Tucker navigated the Minneapolis music scene with an unmatched work ethic and enthusiasm. Forever encouraging friends and fellow musicians, his impact on those he helped was genuine and unforgettable. A keen, kind observer of life and people, he loved Jim Beam, his Mama, great food, his Papa, a good book, his sister, a beautiful song, a beautiful girl, anything that was made well - and none of it necessarily in that order. He knew right where the funny was and was the coolest kid any of us knew. His loss is colossal. A Memorial Service will be held in his honor at Noon on Monday, March 18th at the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to the The 30-Days Foundation the30-daysfoundation.org
