Kathy Jensen was elected to serve District 1 on the Fayetteville City Council in November 2013. She was born and raised in Fayetteville. She attended Long Hill Elementary and Pine Forest Junior High and is a 1983 graduate of Pine Forest Senior High School. Throughout high school, she was involved in many clubs and organizations while working part-time in her family business. Kathy attended East Carolina University and Methodist College pursuing her career in business.

After college, Kathy joined the family business and worked in the retail, property management and customer service departments, bringing a higher level of efficiency and professionalism to the company.

In 1993, Kathy married LTC Jerry Jensen and supported him in his military career through Fort Bragg; Germany; Newport, R. I. and back to Fayetteville and her hometown. When they were deciding on where to live, Kathy and Jerry wanted to raise their children where she was born and raised. In 2005, Kathy opened An Affair to Remember on Ramsey Street across from Methodist University. Since opening, Kathy has learned the value of customers, vendors and employees, and the balance that is required to operate a successful business and be a valuable member of our community.

Kathy is committed to her city, is an active member of the school PTA and booster clubs and volunteers her time and energy willingly. Her care and commitment to her neighbors and citizens of North Fayetteville is visible every day.

Kathy and Jerry have five children and two grandchildren. Their children are Jeremiah Jensen of Columbia, S.C., Jillian of Black Hawk, S.D. and Jake, Josh and James of the home.
