He currently serves at the ranking Minority member of the Assembly Committee on Health, as well as a member of the committees on Banks; Corporations, Authorities & Commissions; Insurance; and Libraries & Education Technology.

Josh believes in serving as a common-sense voice for his constituents and always putting their interests first. Throughout his service to his community, Jensen has continually sought to find reasonable solutions to problems being faced by those he represents and giving a voice to those in his district and beyond. As a member of the Assembly, he has advocated for effective and efficient use of taxpayer dollars; greater accountability and oversight of state government; increasing resources for law enforcement and prioritizing policies to increase public safety; building stronger and more vibrant communities; and, working to make New York State a more affordable place for the families that call it home.

Jensen began his service by representing the residents of the Town of Greece’s 3rd Ward as a member of the town board from 2017-2020. As a councilman, he supported proposals that lowered taxes, prioritized the improvement of vital infrastructure, supported law enforcement, and improved the delivery of services for town residents. Prior to being elected to the Assembly, Josh served as the Director of Communications at one of Upstate New York’s largest nursing homes and worked as a Client Strategy & Relations Supervisor for a Rochester area public relations agency. He started his career in public service with Senator Joe Robach, serving as his Director of Communications, as well as Director of Community Affairs and Public Policy. Additionally, Jensen served as an intern in the White House Office of Strategic Initiatives & External Affairs during the George W. Bush administration.

Jensen is a graduate of Niagara University and Hilton High School, and he proudly volunteers as an at-large member of the Board of Directors of the Hilton Alumni Association, as well as with the Rochester area chapter of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. He previously volunteered with the Rochester Ice Cats, a special hockey team for players with developmental, cognitive and physical disabilities in the Greater Rochester area.

Josh is lifelong resident of the 134th Assembly District and resides in the town of Greece with his wife, Casey, and their children, Brendan and Margot, and rescue pup Ruby.
