Delwyn Jensen was born and raised on a potato farm in Eastern Idaho. Growing up he spent his weekends skiing at Grand Targhee. When the opportunity to move to Teton Valley presented itself in 2005, he jumped on it. He and his wife Loriann have enjoyed living and raising their four boys (Jack, Jonas, Cache, and Teague) in Teton Valley over the last 14 years.
After graduating from BYUI, Delwyn was recruited into banking and went on to earn a second degree from Pacific Coast Banking School, University of Washington. His banking career lasted 15 years with extensive experience in financing commercial C&I, commercial real estate, and commercial/residential construction lending. Currently, he owns and manages a transportation and logistics company called Iron Horse Express. He has also recently started a new business, Snake River Capital Funding, geared toward helping small businesses access the capital they need to grow.
As a committed community leader, Delwyn has served on various boards in Teton Valley, with the most recent being the Teton County School District #401 School Board. He’s also served on Driggs Planning and Zoning, the Driggs Airport Board, and the Teton Valley Chamber of Commerce Board.
After Delwyn’s time on the School Board, he wanted “to continue to be part of an organization that benefits our community as a whole. The Community Foundation doesn’t just benefit a specific type of person or activity in Teton Valley, it benefits all who live here. In giving my time and efforts to this foundation, I feel like I can be a benefit to others.”
