RSAI is sad to announce the death of Rod Jensen

Rodney C. Jensen, past president of RSAI, died on August 23, 2009

The RSAI is sad to report the passing of Emeritus Professor Rodney C. Jensen on 23 August after a long illness. He was 74 years old.

Rod was one of the earliest adopters of regional science in Australia, and was particularly influential in the development of input-output modelling. He was President of the Australian and New Zealand Section of the Regional Science Association International from 1983 to 1986.

Rod played a leading role in ensuring regional science in Australasia was strongly connected with international scholars. He participated in the Second European Regional Science Summer Institute in 1974. In 1990 he served as President of Regional Science Association International, the first Australian to hold this position.

The recent PRSCO international conference held on the Australian Gold Coast included two special sessions on input-output modelling in honour of Rod Jensen. During those sessions, many of his former colleagues and students spoke appreciatively of Rod’s scientific contributions and leadership.

Everyone connected with RSAI expresses its condolences to his wife Enid and their family.
