Jenise Marie Zappitello Jensen, age 56, passed away on March 14, 2012, in Murray, Utah. She was born on July 16, 1955, in Chula Vista, California to Joseph Michael & Martha Marie Christiansen Zappitello. She married Dwight D. Jensen on July 26, 1977 in the Manti Temple. They had one loving daughter Keri Lyn who was sealed to them in July 1993.
She was an amazing wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend and just an amazing person all around, inside and out. Despite all of her struggles and medical issues she fought to live for a long time. At age 11 she was diagnosed with diabetes which eventually led to kidney failure and heart failure. It was the hardest thing for her just to get out of bed and do normal things people have to do every day, but she did and she did it with a happy upbeat attitude. Even though she was in constant pain she was always happy and made others who were around her happy and laugh. She was really an amazing person who held on longer than most people in her situation do.
She played piano, she was a good cook, and enjoyed music in general. She attended BYU, Provo.
She is survived by her husband, and her daughter.
Funeral Services will be held on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 12:00 noon, at the Little Cottonwood 5th Ward, 6305 South Rodeo Lane, Murray, Utah.
