Jenson had a mishap while earlier this month and suffered a broken femur while sleeping. He underwent surgery at All Children's Hospital to repair the break, and spent a few days in recovery. He will be away from table tennis recouping for over a month.
He was scheduled to compete in the U.S. Nationals in Las Vegas in December.Jenson is a top-rated para-player and played in Europe earlier this year before moving from Wisconsin to Clearwater.
We all wish him a quick recovery. He surely will be missed.

STTC made an awesome showing at the Sunshine State Games. There
were a record number of entries in most events so the competition
was tough. Some of these players are getting good. They are going to
be harder to beat next year.
