I am sorry to say I never met Eric, but his Mother was my music teacher at Hawthorne Elementary in Fargo, ND. She let me borrow a violin from her so I could take lessons and I was allowed to play in Orchestra in 3rd grade. I have enjoyed playing ever since thanks to her. She was a great inspiration, as she obviously must have been for Eric. I am sad to hear of his passing and wish I could have met him and told him I too am now performing and teaching , remotely sharing the legacy of his mother of possessing a passion for string music. I am pleased to see his accomplishments, and it is by chance I came to read about him. I am playing a 5 string acoustic/electric violin I have had for 35 years and I look forward to researching more about Eric's recordings and instruments he designed. Although we never met, I feel a connection through our shared influence from his mother Virginia and coming from the fertile arts community here in Fargo instilling a lasting love of Music from childhood on to a lifelong pursuit. I am inspired by his story and send my sincere condolences to his family, from a fellow string player from Fargo, ND.

To the family of Eric Jensen:

Condolences to the family of Eric Jensen. I was sorry to learn about his passing. I took cello lessons from him for a couple of years in the mid-1980s. I was new to the cello, but 45 years old. He gathered material for me to learn on that would be meaningful for me, yet teach me techniques I needed. I then was away from Seattle for a few months and didn't take lessons after that, although I still play actively, some 30 years later sometimes practicing using music he gave me.

He had his students give a recital at the end of the school year in his home. My daughter was visiting, from music school, and was shocked that I wasn't going to warm up at home before I went. That was all new to me. At the recital I basically froze and it sounded terrible, but Eric was compassionate he'd seen that before I'm sure.

One time he wasn't there for my lesson. He said he would come to my house for the next lesson. I said he didn't have to do that, but he insisted. An added bonus was I had just bought a Macintosh computer and had a program in which a song was recorded, but you could silence one of the parts and play along with the computer. He was interested in that technological advance and we tried it out. Later, of course, he made electric cellos.

I am grateful for Eric's help in improving my cello playing and laying the groundwork for 30 years of fun and satisfaction.

My condolences to your family in this time of grief. I'm so excited for the time soon when God will do away with death forever (1 Corinthians 15:26)
