Former teacher at a secondary school at Leeuwarden (Fr.), Netherlands. Made a study tour in the Dutch East Indies at the expense of the Deterding Fund, in 1936.



Plants collected by him during the tour were dried at the Buitenzorg Herbarium and forwarded to him in Oct. 1936. He intended to take them to Holland. This plant collection was not collected by Jensma himself, but was a show collection for educational purposes prepared by the Buitenzorg Herbarium. In 1955 the collection was presented to Herb. Leiden [L].
