Tribute To Tate Jensen
A Utah Cowboy Who Cared About The Land
Tate D. Jensen. March 16, 1980 - August 28, 2011
Tate started riding horses and working cows with his father and grandparents at an early age. He developed a keen-eye for managing cattle, an unmatched work ethic and gentle hand for raising horses.
Tate graduated from Norte Dame, Carbon High, College of Eastern Utah and Utah State University with a Bachelors Degree in Range Management with the goal of enhancing the family’s cattle operation.
Tate served as a past President of the Eastern Utah Cattle Growers Association, an area director of the Utah Cattleman’s Associations, on the Board for the Utah Grazing Improvement Program, and a member of the Utah Cattleman’s Association, National Cattlemen Beef Association and the Utah Farm Bureau.
Tate loved life, loved his family, loved his friends and loved being a cowboy. In addition to the family cattle business, Tate also raised a small herd of sheep and kept everyone in lamb chops. Come Christmas, Tate was one of the biggest kids, always championing the annual trek to cut down his version of that perfect “Grizwald” Christmas tree. When it came to music, whether horse-back, driving truck or building fence, Tate loved to sing.
Tate worked hard, had a huge heart and was loved by many. He will be remembered for his contagious laugh and his hugs. He will be missed by his family, the TN Cowboys and Crew, fellow cattlemen and numerous friends.
