Jan "Face" Krogh Jensen (August 23, 1958 – June 16, 1996[1]) was a Danish mobster and member of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club.

He emigrated to Helsingborg, Sweden and co-founded White Trash MC, Sweden's first "outlaw" motorcycle club, with Michael Ljunggren in the mid-1980s. He later became a member of the Bandidos in the early 1990s.

On June 16, 1996, he was travelling to the Bandidos chapter in Drammen, Norway with Michael Lerche Olsen, the President of the Bandidos' Swedish chapters, and a number of Norwegian members when he was murdered. He stopped at a rest point in Mjøndalen, Lower Eiker and was shot several times with a 7.65 semi-automatic pistol and taken to the Ullevål University Hospital in Oslo where he was pronounced dead.[2] It is thought that Lerche Olsen was the intended target. A member of the Hells Angels was prosecuted for the murder but later acquitted in court.[3]
