Our History

In 1998, the seeds of Jensen Excavating were sown by the visionary Brian Jensen, during his employment at Pella. What began as a humble endeavor, with the acquisition of his first backhoe, soon evolved into something bigger. Utilizing his free time, Brian embarked on tile repairs and other projects, realizing his passion for excavation.

As the word spread about the exceptional quality of Brian’s work, the demand for Jensen Excavating’s services soared. This surge of job requests signaled a turning point, leading Brian to take a courageous leap of faith. He bid farewell to his position at Pella, making Jensen Excavating his sole mission.

Brian’s relentless work ethic and unwavering dedication paid off exponentially. With sheer determination and a relentless pursuit of excellence, he transformed Jensen Excavating from a one-man operation with a single backhoe into a full-fledged excavating powerhouse.

Today, Jensen Excavating stands tall as a testament to Brian’s entrepreneurial spirit, inspiring growth, and a commitment to delivering exceptional results. From its humble beginnings to its remarkable achievements, the journey of Jensen Excavating is a story of perseverance, passion, and success in the world of excavating and beyond.
