Jim Jenson, a retired judge and World War II veteran, has lived near downtown Los Altos for 22 years, after 31 years in Los Altos Hills. He celebrated his 99th birthday recently with friends and neighbors.
With 99 well-lived years to reflect on, James “Jim” Jenson now leads a quiet life near downtown Los Altos.
Moving from Los Altos Hills with his wife, Helen, 22 years ago, Jenson maintained an active lifestyle until recently, and he still enjoys the company of friends and family, walks to DeMartini Orchard and has an excellent memory. Helen died in 2010, but his three children are frequent visitors from their homes in Houston, Sonora and Colorado. Jenson also has four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
