    It is with deep sadness hearing that My co-worker passed away. Ms. Jensen
    Was a wonderful person to work with And a true professional.

    I worked with Ms. Jensen the past five years at Folsom State Prison, she kept the library up and beyond state standards. She was a good person and someone that I will truly missed.

    I can still see her crystal blue eyes in my mind. She was an intelligent and dear person the the FSP faculty will deeply miss.

    Goodbye, Nina Jensen, I wish you well in your quest to redeem the redeemer again within the living cosmos of gnosis, the Library.

    “What makes us free is the knowledge of who we were, what we have become; where we were, where we have been thrown to; where we speed to, where we are redeemed from; what is birth and what [is] rebirth.”

    Nina was such an integral part of the CDCR Library staff, recognized not just at Folsom but also throughout the state. Her enthusiastic personality will be missed; and I, personally, am so sad that she missed fulfilling her dream of being the Senior Librarian. She taught many, many of us so many things. Rest in peace, Nina. My condolences to her family and friends.
