Jerry Jensen, aka “Sweaty J”
When I was starting my professional career a man I respect told me, “Either find something that you love to do so much that you would do it for free, or find something that will provide you the resources and time to do those very things.” That philosophy has shaped the paradigm with which I evaluate every major decision in my life. For me, Tew Teg is a brand for those people who share that life view.
I was raised in rural Indiana with a mother who’s mantra was “go outside and play”; and we did, from dusk till dawn. Once in school I participated in every sport that would have me; including baseball, football, swimming, track, cross country, and wrestling. I thoroughly enjoyed each of these sports but wrestling was where I had the most success. I finished my wrestling career at Indiana University.
Today, my passions are as broad as they were in High School. I’m currently getting trained in kickboxing, I love to mountain bike, play basketball, go paddle boarding on Lady Bird Lake, and drinking mojitos by the pool. The last of which I’m hoping to go pro!
