Nicholas Jenison

October 11, 1986 - September 21, 2014


Nicholas Michael Jenison, 27, Fargo, ND passed away on Sunday, September 21, 2014 at Sanford Health in Fargo as a result of a motorcycle accident.  As Nick’s last act of generosity, his wish to be an organ donor was fulfilled.

He was born on October 11, 1986, along with his twin brother, Jared, to Bradley and Shawn (Fines) Jenison in Dickinson, ND.  He spent his early childhood in Minot and Harwood, and in 1996 he and his family settled in Leonard.  Nick attended Kindred schools, graduating from Kindred High School in 2005.  During his childhood and high school years, Nick helped out at the family bar and restaurant, Dewey’s.

Following graduation, he began working in the construction industry as a roofer and framer.  At his time of passing, Nick had just started his own construction company with his best friend, Andrew. He loved his work and was always willing to help out a friend or family member with a project.

Nick’s first love was his motorcycle, and he enjoyed many hours riding with his friends.  Fishing, hunting, and wakeboarding were some of his other favorite hobbies.

He is survived by his parents, Brad and Shawn Jenison; twin brother, Jared (Jamie) Jenison; sister, Kaitlyn Jenison; nephew, Daniel Jenison; grandfather, Jerry (Anne) Fines; grandmother, Janice Ferguson; uncles, Gary (Joan) Jenison, Jay (Marcia) Fines; aunts, Sharon (Gene) Rudolph, Laurel Lindemann, Shelly (Tracy) Engebretson, Stephanie (Stu) Fineswright; best friend, Andrew; beloved cat, Goofy; many, many cousins; and other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his step-grandfather, Tom Ferguson; uncle, Ron Jenison; grandfather, Beryl Jenison; grandmother, Marjorie Jenison.

Nick lived life to the fullest.  One of his favorite quotes was, “Why tiptoe through life to arrive safely at death?”

    Rapid City SDDuring the difficult days of hope and resignation I marveled how many loved Nick. At the prayer meeting with family and friends stories were told and brought laughter which would have made Nick turn red! I will miss Nick terribly. I loved him in the beginning of his life and to the end but my heart will be keeping Nick with me till I also pass and will see him again.

    My sympathies to all of Nick’s family and friends.

    Nicholas was a beloved member of our family for MANY years. He had the biggest heart and loved stronger than most people are capable of, which is how he lived life to it’s fullest.

    I will never forget all the talks we used to have, and all of the “mommy meals” I used to share with him and Kayla.

    I truly did think of him as one of my own and he will FOREVER be in my heart.

    Love and Hugs,

    fargo ndWe love you Nick! Thanks for letting us be a part of your life. Thanks for being such a goofball and always making us laugh either with you or at you. You always knew when someone needed a good laugh and did whatever was needed to lighten their day. Thanks for beating to a different drummer and always keeping us guessing. You are a very special one of a kind and we were so proud and lucky to have you be a part of our lives. Be good in Heaven and keep them laughing as you did for us all these years!

    west fargo ndWhenever I saw Nick, he was smiling. It seemed impossible for one person to contain so much happiness in whatever environment he was placed in. He was a good friend who would drop whatever he was doing to help you out. Thank you for everything, Nick.
