Monitronics Employee Honored with Mission 500 Humanitarian Award

Mission 500, a charitable organization engaging security professionals to sponsor needy children, has recognized Monitronics Central Station Director Mary Jensby with its 2012 Humanitarian and Corporate Social Responsibility award. The award is designed to honor companies and individuals in the security industry who make important contributions to those in need.

Jensby, known for her service to the Central Station Alarm Association and Electronic Security Association, has been engaged in volunteering efforts for community and social causes in the Dallas area for years.

 “Volunteering is important to me because it gives me the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life at a time when they need it most,” Jensby said. “It’s not about making monetary donations or contributions; it’s about the self-satisfaction that I had an impact to make someone or something better, even if it was for a short time.”

At Monitronics, Jensby takes the lead in helping the local community, including working with the Salvation Army to prepare and serve meals. She also volunteers at a North Texas Food Bank in a wide variety of tasks including unloading trucks, stocking shelves, emptying and filling cartons, loading tables, and more. During the Christmas season, Jensby’s team at Monitronics “adopted” the local elementary school and invited another special needs school to their facility. Children enjoyed a day with Santa and were treated to lunch, presents, and a tour of the service department. Additionally, each Christmas she has donated items to a local assisted-living care facility, making sure that every resident receives a gift. In her spare time, Jensby also volunteers for the American Cancer Society.

Jensby’s award will be presented at 5 p.m. March 29 at ISC West. The ceremony will be held at the Security 5K reception on the show floor near the entrance to the expo hall.
