Derek Jensen started working at Fox Pest Control in 2018. Growing up in Utah, Derek had no prior experience with the Long Island area. However, when he and his wife moved to Hicksville so his wife could attend PA school at the New York Institute of technology, he quickly fell in love with everything about New York – the bustling city, Broadway shows, and the passionate people. When JT, Fox’s Long Island Branch Owner, offered Derek a job at Fox Pest Control he couldn’t refuse. Derek quickly became the branch manager and he’s enjoyed helping Long Island area residents solve their pest problems ever since.
Derek and his wife have been married for four years now. Together, they’ve learned to love life in New York — a task that’s been made extremely easy thanks to New York pizza and new traditions. Derek and his wife’s favorite pizza place is Little Vincent’s in Huntington, where they order their famous cold cheese pizza. Little Vincent’s (and other pizza places like it) have destroyed pizza anywhere else in the U.S. for Derek. Nothing can compare!
Derek came to know Old Westbury better when his wife was at NYIT and he was driving there multiple times a week to pick up lunch to eat with her. As a huge seafood fan, places like Old Westbury and Huntington now hold a special place in Derek’s memory.
With the absence of immediate family nearby, friends and members of the Fox team have become like family to Derek. He and his wife have friends over for the holidays or make the drive together to see the Rockefeller Center Christmas lights. They’ve also become Broadway enthusiasts. You can find them in a big theater watching some of their favorites, including Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.
Although Derek and his wife initially planned to move back west after she graduated, New York has convinced them to stay. Derek plans to manage the Long Island branch for a long time and experience even more of what New York’s great cities have to offer.
