In Memoriam: Peter E. Jensen, Hampton Falls

Peter Edward Jensen

Peter Edward Jensen, 85, of Hampton Falls, died Saturday, March 19, 2016 at Edgewood Centre in Portsmouth.

A native of Salem, Mass., he was raised in nearby Marblehead, and graduated from Northeastern University in 1953. Jensen went on to enlist in the United States Army and served two years before returning home and again attending Northeastern University, graduating with an MBA in 1963. He subsequently attained his law degree from Suffolk Law in 1970.

Jensen worked for Sylvania as a plant accountant from 1956-1960, before joining Raytheon in 1960. While at Raytheon, he initially managed various departments and later worked as controller for their Missile System Division before being named facilities and commercial support manager.

In 1970 Peter served as corporate controller for Transitron Electric Corporation, leaving in 1971 to work for the NYSE Corporation as their group controller until 1972, when he left to start his own law firm, Peter E. Jensen, Attorney at Law, with offices in Newburyport, Mass., Hampton Falls, Portsmouth and Raymond.

Jensen was a member of several yacht and sailing clubs in New England, American Legion Post 35 of Hampton, the Antique Truck Club of America, the New Hampshire and Massachusetts bar associations, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Jensen loved being a lawyer and took great pride in being a mentor.
