Meet President Chirstian Jensen

Christian Jensen, mTT-Wisconsin chapter president and Mary's Angel

Christian Jensen is the President/Executive Director of myTEAM TRIUMPH – Wisconsin Chapter.

Professionally, Christian is a Business Growth and Development Specialist for Bellin Health in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Christian started with Bellin Health in 2008 as a Personal Trainer focused on Performance Enhancement.

In 2008 Christian began training a woman with muscular dystrophy named Mary Cox.  At 60 years old, Mary was totally dependent on people for mobility challenges.  One day in training, Mary told Christian she has always wanted to run “the Bellin” (the fourth largest 10K in the U.S.), but because of her muscular dystrophy, she never could.

Later that year, Christian and his wife, Tiffany granted Mary her wish by pushing her in a child’s running stroller!  In 2009, Mary, Christian and Tiffany took their journey to the next level and participated in the Green Bay Marathon.  The true spark for staring a chapter in Wisconsin came after the Marathon when Mary told Christian and Tiffany: “I really wish other people could experience this!”

In 2010, with an incredibly dedicated Board and Staff and through the generous support of the Wisconsin Community, myTEAM TRIUMPH fielded Captains in 16 endurance events and provided 54 racing opportunities for 20 Captains, 215 Angels and 50 Volunteers.

Christian is very dedicated to the long-term vision of myTEAM TRIUMPH in Wisconsin and throughout the Country.

“I am so incredibly honored to be connected to all of you in our mutual vision to share the courage of our Captains with the world.  I am so excited to see what God will do with us in this organization!”
