You mean that Jens is not related to Angelina Jolie? That's his loss.

Passed a guy on the street Saturday wearing a "What Would Jens Do" t-shirt. Awesome.

Thanks for the link--enjoyed hearing Jens. Have been looking for news but not finding much other than "he'll be okay."

What a guy - just from the couple of youtube videos posted here on him, you get the sense he's a helluva leader and person, and fun to be around.
