Kai Jensen announced on Boardgamegeek.com early this morning that her husband, Chad Jensen, lost his battle with cancer. Jensen was best known in the industry for his games Dominant Species and Combat Commander, both with GMT Games.
Kai said earlier this week that Chad came home from hospice on November 10 after his cancer took an aggressive turn in October. Doctors said they weren’t able to treat him anymore, but could only help to keep him comfortable.
Friends of the Jensen’s launched a GoFundMe crowdfunding account in May to help pay for his chemotherapy. They raised $26,442 for the family.
“Thank you all for your support during this difficult year. Your posts, well-wishes, donations, get well cards, and outpouring of love have carried us through to the end game,” Kai posted on the popular board game forum.
