To the entire Jenkins family,
My condolence in the passing of your dear Dad. He had a life well lived! I will forever keep his memories alive in my heart. We remember him as "Cool Breeze" Nobody we knew could dress like him with matching outfits to match his custom cars! "Sharp as a tack!" I can still see and hear him laughing and joking with us at State Farm. He truly was one of a kind. I pray you will be comforted by his wonderful memories.

To the Jenskins kids: Find peace in knowing that Mr. Jenskins is now with his "Heavenly" father. Remember, To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

There was never a dull moment,always jive and slick talking to match his colorful attire. You just never knew when to expect him or what to expect of him. I am going to miss the unexpected knock on my door and the laughter that followed.
Forever in my heart.
Thumbs Up!!!
