91-Year-Old Woman Kills 101-Year-Old Otto Jensen

Posted on May 25, 2012

The photography studio that sits in front of the senior center in Burbank is now sans its founder 101-year-old Otto Jensen. A former boxer and a man who shared the joy to live with all those around him died Tuesday night. Jensen was crossing the street from his studio in the direction of a senior center which he enjoyed visiting when a car hit him.

Crossing Olive Avenue’s four lanes towards the senior center a car driven by a 91-year-old woman allegedly sped in the direction of Jensen. The woman is a retired school teacher and library board trustee. People who know her describe her as lovely and intelligent. She was unaware of Jensen who witnesses describe was jogging towards the sidewalk and struck him. The impact jerked the 101-year-old into the air and landed with a loud thud on the hard concrete.

Pools of blood began to form around the fallen man and began to stream down the road. A nearby resident heard the loud noise of the impact and rushed outside the find the man on going in and out of consciousness on the floor. Unhurt, the 91-year-old woman was in a state of shock inside her car. She then told the resident what had happened. To console the fallen victim, the resident reassured him that help was on the way.

When police arrived, they discovered that Jensen has been crossing the street legally which gives him the right to compensation. A Los Angeles car accident lawyer can help present the case of the accident with the facts of what had happened to help Jensen’s family for what was unjustly done to him. Meanwhile detectives are scratching their heads to understand what lead to the accident.
Dedicated to his community, Jensen was an active volunteer and had been the grand marshal of Burbank’s 2011 centennial parade.

Originally from Demark, he lived in a home behind his studio which was adorned with black and white photographs of children near the entrance. He had an 87-year-old girlfriend and was known to smoke about two cigarettes per day. His modus operandi in life followed a simple motto “live and love,” something, which can only be accomplished with the help of a few women he said. He is survived by a granddaughter.

Per various resources Jensen moved to Burbank in 1939 from New York where he had emigrated and had been a boxer. His family, now in distress should consider calling a car accident lawyer to help determine a settlement that can help to pay for burial services of the victim. A tree near the crash site had various notes and pictures of Jensen, including a poster of a 19-year-old, a younger self nicknamed “Bonecrusher.”
