Today I'm giving thanks for Dennis Jensen, a/k/a “Dr. J”.
I first met Dr. J as the superintendent of Wayne Public Schools, where I grew up. He led the schools to be very tech forward. I ended up interacting with Dr. J a lot - in part because of my tech skills and in part because I was voted student body president. He was a big encouragement to me.
After I left to go to college and came back home for a summer, he recruited me to come work at the edtech company he started. It was an ideal scenario as I carved out time from the get go to continue working on my own entrepreneurial ventures, and he also offered a better wage than I otherwise would’ve found in home town at the time.
I learned a lot while working for that company and it was also a catalyst for many things to come.
Dr. J- thank you for your investments in me. Your encouragements along the way and the opportunities you presented mean a lot to me to this day.
