About Us

Originally based in Killdeer, North Dakota, Jensen Sand and Gravel was started by Virgil and Juanita Jensen in 1929 as a crushing company where it had successful growth for nearly 20 years.  In 1950, the family-owned and operated business relocated to Mobridge, South Dakota, and was renamed to what is now known as Jensen Rock and Sand, Inc.  Over the next thirty years, Virgil, Juanita and their two sons (David and Derry) continued the expansion of the business by including chip-sealing, redi-mix, and asphalt paving services into their product offering.

In 1980, Juanita retired and two years later Derry sold his portion of the business to his brother David who then continued the operations with his two sons Kenny and Kyle, and his wife Valynn.
Today, Jensen Rock & Sand still offers the quality products and services that so many in the area have come to know over the years and we personally thank all of our friends, family, employees and customers who have helped us grow into the people and business we are today.  With great dignity, we hope to carry the Jensen family business tradition into the fourth generation.
