MEMORIES & CONDOLENCES
I am so sorry to hear about Paul. He was a wonderful leader in our congregation. I admired his ability to calmly explain his opinion on issues. I found him to be open minded yet not afraid to express his views. I feel lucky to have known him so many years. My prayers are with Margaret and the family.

Margaret and Family,
I am so saddened to hear of Paul's passing. I enjoyed visiting with him in your home when Margaret was helping me with Volunteer work and also at Engineering Events. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Prof. Jensen was an inspiration in and out of the classroom. One of my favorite UT professors. Unselfishly helped me (any time I called him!) as I developed materials for my classes at St. Mary's University. I still use some Paul's old (sometimes unsolvable) formulation problems in my classes.
Before taking his class, I never thought Network Flow Programming would be so much fun!
What a good man he was!
With my love and prayers

He was a rare jewel. A magnificent warm, heart connected to a fiercely keen mind. I’ll think of him often with love. Leigh Ann Montgomery, Ph.D.
