New Member Feature | Debbie Jensen

Introducing new members into our club is one of our favorite things to do. Get to know more about our newest member, Debbie Jensen, with this introduction, which was read to the club by her sponsor Tom McGirr.

Until moving to Salem in November of last year, Debbie Jensen could was a native California, having grown up in Vallejo CA and then moving to the Bay Area.

Debbie has been in banking since 1988 and achieved her Corp Finance Certificate at UC Berkeley extension and attended Cannon Trust School in Pepperdine in 2004.  She has worked as a Senior Trust Officer the past 5 years at U.S. Trust in Walnut Creek and spent the prior 13 years as a Trust Officer with Wells Fargo Private Wealth Management in San Francisco.  She now works for Columbia Trust Company in Salem as a Senior Trust Officer and Team Leader.

Over the years, Debbie’s family moved to the Salem area.  That, and quality of life considerations, triggered her decision to move to Salem. Debbie is married to Roger, who was a contractor and has now started up his own business as a certified home inspector.  Debbie’s son Bret is currently in the Army stationed at Fort Brag NC.

She loves getting involved in her community as evidenced by her being a Rotarian since 1996.  She was president of her local Rotary Club and is a Paul Harris Fellow.  Debbie and Roger enjoy the outdoors, camping, hiking, wine tasting and looks forward to her new life experience in Oregon.

Debbie has been trying to convince Tom McGirr, her sponsor, that California makes some good Pinot Noir.  He has advised her she needs to do some extensive wine tasting in the Willamette Valley to taste REAL Pinot Noir!

Please welcome Debbie to Salem Rotary!
