Who was Luke Jensen?
Luke Jensen was a 9-year-old boy who died from leukemia in May 2010. Luke attended King’s Way Christian Schools, just west of the sports park. Naming the sports park in memory of Luke was proposed and voted on, along with several other suggested names, as part of a public process in January 2011. The park's name was officially approved by the Board of Clark County Commissioners in March 2011.
