Jens was a beloved member of the Seattle tech-art community. A 20-year veteran of the games industry, Jens was a lead tech artist at ArenaNet for most of the last decade. For the last year he was a lead tech artist at 343 on Halo Infinite. Jens was known for his sunny disposition and his readiness to help his colleagues. He’ll be greatly missed by those of us who knew him.
