  • Today marks the 23rd anniversary of the death of Officer James Rex Jensen Jr. Jim was born on 06/19/65 in Salt Lake City, Utah. After graduating high school, Jim joined the United States Marine Corps, where he served as a Military Policeman.

After his military service, Jim was hired as a Deputy with the Ventura County Sheriff's Office. He worked there for 4 years, including time at the now shut down Honor Farm, before he lateraled to the Oxnard Police Department. Jim was an enthusiastic officer who enjoyed his job. He was active in patrol as well as his time off duty, where he volunteered as an assistant baseball coach at Sunset Little League.

Because of Jim's dedication, skill, and commitment, he was selected as a member of the department's Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, at that time, a collateral assignment, in 1995. Jim enjoyed the challenges the position presented and worked hard to excel at the position.

On March 13th, 1996, the SWAT Team participated in a narcotics related search warrant on Manzanita Drive. During the service of the warrant, a light sound diversionary device (flash bang) was deployed to the second story of the location and SWAT operators moved tot he second story in order to clear the rest of the residence. During this time, another team member mistook Jim for a suspect and shot him multiple times. Jim was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries.  Although the incident was especially tragic, many lessons were learned. The SWAT Team was transformed into a full time assignment (the Special Enforcement Unit, or SEU), where an extensive, annual training plan was developed in order to better train SWAT operators to avoid similar incidents in the future.

Jim is survived by his wife, Jenny, and two daughters, Lindsey and Katie. 
Please take the time throughout the day to remember Jim and the ultimate sacrifice that he made. If you would like to visit his final resting place, Jim is buried at Ivy Lawn Memorial Park, 5400 Valentine Road, in the City of Ventura, Section K, Plot 608, Grave #9. In keeping with tradition, A floral arrangement has been placed there by the OPOA.
