Celebrating 67 years of excellence!
In Honor of our Dear Friend and Queen:
It is with heavy hearts that we share some devastating news. Jensen Hoover, our Miss Virginia Association of Fairs 2016, passed away due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident that occurred on Saturday, May 7, 2022.
While we are still searching for the right words to express our grief, we wanted to invite you all to share your memories of Jensen so that we may CELEBRATE her life.
The year Jensen won Miss VAF in 2016, our theme was “Celebrate.” Some may remember our pageant shirts were black with the gold sparkly words on the front, “Celebrate Miss VAF 2016.” Today, even though our hearts are breaking, we ask you all to share your memories of Jensen to help us celebrate our beautiful and uniquely dynamic Miss VAF 2016.
Outside of her long list of accomplishments from a collegiate athlete to business owner and state pageant winner, Jensen was kind, hard-working, funny and goal oriented. Her presence brought a bright light to every space she entered. Daughter, sister, wife and friend. Loved by so many and an inspiration to others for her fierce determination to accomplish her goals and for her work around her platform on mental health. Jensen was never shy when it came to speaking out for what she believed in and giving a voice to those who did not have one.
Thank you for your service as Miss VAF 2016. We love you, Jensen. You will be so deeply missed.
