Jared W. Jensen, P.E.
Jared W. Jensen, P.E. graduated with BS and MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University in 2004. That same year, he was lead author for research into accelerated gas turbine blade degradation that won Best Paper at the 2004 IGTI Gas Turbine Expo in Austria. This research opened a new field of study and led to over 50 follow-up publications over the next decade by researchers across the United States.
From 2004 to 2012, Jared worked at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory in upstate New York. After a short period in research, he transferred to operations and attended the Naval Nuclear Power School in Charleston, South Carolina. After working as an operations engineer, Jensen qualified as a Naval Nuclear Engineer and took responsibility for a training and operations section at the S8G-AFR naval nuclear training reactor in early 2011. After becoming a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of New York in January of 2012, he served as a root cause investigator and conducted over 20 major incident investigations ranging from personnel injuries to equipment failures.
In November 2012, he began work for Chevron as a deepwater field drilling engineer acquiring diverse experience working two deepwater Gulf of Mexico exploration fields and two mature land fields in the San Joaquin Valley near Bakersfield, California. He now provides shore-based engineering support for the Chevron Tahiti field in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
