Jensie was nominated by our own GTT Blog Manager, Amanda Lea. “Jensie has rooted for female competitors across the board. Her tenacity in the game pales only to her infectious positive attitude. She is a joy to throw with, no matter what the situation. I also admire her for her drive for her business. I have watched her and Casey blow this little cornhole bag company out of the water and I am so proud to call her my friend.”
What is your personal cornhole quote? My personal cornhole quote or quotes are made up of many ways using the F-Bomb. You would be amazed how many combinations you can come up with by just adding the first word you think of.
I’m also told I say “Are ya gonna go?” a lot.
Where Do You Live? I live in Yakima, WA. Also known as the Palm Springs of Washington!
How long have you been playing? I have been playing since February of last year and competitively since September.
Why did you start playing cornhole? I never wanted to play cornhole, I had just started dating Casey(my boyfriend) and he had started on a whim. I went to read my book, and drink cider then one day… he said it was time for me to start learning. I was AWFUL, until he played catch with me and taught me to throw 2 feet at a time. Since then we have started our own Bag Business and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What’s your favorite thing about cornhole? My favorite thing about cornhole is that it has an even playing field. There are no minimums or maximums on age, and there are no requirements to be man or woman. You could come from the mountains or the plains, be a surfer or a socialite…it does not matter in cornhole! We all get to be equal.
What cornhole brings to your life? Never in a million years would I think cornhole would actually make a difference in my life….and it HAS! We began our business in the midst of a pandemic and somehow continued to build while others sank. Cornhole has brought my family together, and introduced us to SO many friends and folks we call family now. It now gives us the financial freedom to allow Casey to be home on a full time basis, and me.. well I will never give up my actual career outside of cornhole.
