DeMatha Hockey to Honor Fallen Officer

Annual game, known as "The Tommy" commemorates DeMatha hockey alum, former PGPD officer Thomas Jensen.

Former Prince George's County Police officer Thomas Jensen, who died in 2010 as a result of injuries sustained on duty, will be honored at a DeMatha hockey game against Calvert Hall High School today in Laurel. 

Jensen, a graduate of DeMatha's class of 2000, played varsity hockey at DeMatha and on the Prince George's County Fraternal Order of Police 89ers hockey team after he began working for the department in 2004. 

In March 2010, Jensen died after sustaining severe injuries to his head and neck during an auto wreck in College Park as he responded to a burglary in progress.

The game, known as "The Tommy", will be played at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel today at 4 p.m. 

Admission is free, though donations to the Thomas P. Jensen Scholarship Fund can be made by contacting DeMatha hockey coach Tony MacAulay at TMacAulay@DeMatha.org.
