Looking to his 2013-14 term as Utah State Bar President, Curtis Jensen said, “As Bar president-elect, I had a chance to become familiar with most of the western bar associations, and I am proud to say that Utah is often leading the pack in innovative programs, and I welcome the opportunity to serve the 11,500 members of the Utah State Bar, the Courts, and the general public.”

As a Bar Commissioner, Jensen represented the 5th Commission Division, which consists of the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Judicial Districts.  He was liaison to the Utah State Bar’s Ethics Advisory Opinion Committee, Character Fitness Committee, Budget and Finance Committee, and Lawyer Referral Service Committee.  “The Board of Commissioners devotes countless hours working for justice, and I am fortunate to be associated with such an energetic and dedicated group,” said Jensen.

Jensen graduated from SnowCollege (A.S., 1980), BrighamYoungUniversity (B.S. 1982), and University of Tulsa College of Law (J.D. 1995).  He has been an Adjunct Professor at Dixie State College (1999-2002) and Southern Utah University (1999-2001).

Jensen is one of the founding partners of Snow Jensen & Reece, P.C. in St. George.  He represents clients throughout the intermountain area in all aspects of real estate, construction, banking, business, and litigation. He is an advocate of implementing strong claim prevention methods and practices, and is very adept in resolving disputes without protracted litigation.

Jensen is a member of the American Bar Association, Federal Bar Association, Utah State Bar, and the Southern Utah Bar Association.  He is licensed to practice before the courts of Utah, the Federal District Court for Utah, and the United States Supreme Court.

Jensen has served on several local boards and associations, including Chairman of the Washington County School District Foundation, Chairman of the Santa Clara City Planning Commission, and member of the Habitat for Humanity Board for the Utah Southwest Chapter.  He has served as a guest lecture for the Utah Contractor Board of Certification of Licensing of General Contractors (2006-07) and the Southern Utah University Department of Construction Management on “Contracts and Risk Prevention” (2007).

Jensen enjoys traveling with his family and whenever possible taking motorcycle rides on the many back roads and byways of Utah with his wife.  He is an avid sportsman and enjoys watching and participating in almost any kind of sports.  He is happily married, with four wonderful daughters and son-in-laws, a teenage son, and five beautiful grandchildren.
