Featured Employee

Kourt JensenKourt Jensen

July’s featured employee is Kourt Jensen. As a Senior Network Support Specialist, he plays a big role in keeping MACC’s technology running at full speed so you can always count on us for the service and support your company needs. Cybersecurity is also an important part of his job as he works with his teammates in Technology Services to ensure our network is always safe and secure.

Q. When did you start at MACC?
A. I started in November of 1996. It was back when the Internet connection was dial-up, the computers ran Windows 95, and no one Googled anything.

Q. What’s your favorite part of your job?
A. Solving mysteries…I enjoy figuring out why something is not working and finding a fix for it.

Q. Can you please tell us about your family?
A. My wife, Lena, works in the treasury office at the courthouse. She also sings, and her and I are in a band together, which is a lot of fun. My daughter, Kailynn, is 19 and is a chemistry major at UNL. She is planning on medical school in the future. My son, Kenner, is 16. We have been practicing driving a lot lately and he just got his driver’s license. He enjoys computers and is hoping to pursue a career in that area when he graduates in two years.

Q. What do you do for fun in your free time?
A. I enjoy playing electric guitar in our band or acoustic guitar around a fire. My wife has a beautiful voice and I love listening to her sing. I also enjoy buying and selling things on Ebay, especially vintage toys, comics, trading cards, and things I enjoyed as a child. I am a collector of various things myself, so sometimes it is hard to let them go. The downside is having a room at home filled with boxes and packing material.

Q. If you could travel anywhere to spend a week on vacation, where would it be?
A. The White Cliffs of Dover.

Q. What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
A. Do something you enjoy and you’ll never work.

Q. What’s your favorite quote?
A. Life’s what happens while you’re busy making plans.
-John Lennon

Q. If you could add any food to the MACC vending machines, what would it be?
A. Fresh bagels and cream cheese.
