FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft had a message to Kenneth Jorgensen.
“Kenneth, the man from the happiest country in the world,” he said.
Kenneth Jorgensen just might be the happiest guy from the happiest country in the world.
“It was so surreal. I was speechless. I couldn’t believe I was seeing that Robert Kraft sent me a personal message. It was surreal, it was the best moment in my whole life,” Jorgensen said.
The 39-year-old Patriots fan, who was born and raised in Denmark and still lives there, received a video message from Kraft thanking him for his support after Boston 25 News featured Jorgensen in a story last week on his dedication to the team.
“I love your passion for the Patriots. You have clearly been one of our most devoted fans and we can’t thank you enough for all of your support,” Kraft said in the 31-second video.
Jorgensen is as much of a diehard Patriots fan as you’ll find anywhere, in the world. His man cave is a shrine to the 6-time Super Bowl champs. In January, Jorgensen wrote a letter to head coach Bill Belichick about his love of the Pats. He said he was floored when a few weeks later, he received a letter in the mail from Belichick thanking him for his dedication, along with an autographed picture.
“My life has turned 180 degrees. It’s crazy. It’s crazy. It’s so surreal people are like starting to notice me on the street,” Jorgensen said.
In the last week, Jorgensen has appeared on the front page of two Danish newspapers and was featured on two network television shows in Denmark, including the one in which Kraft surprised him with an invitation to Foxborough.
“I look forward to hosting you next time you come across the pond at Gillette Stadium. We are all Patriots,” Kraft said.
Jorgensen said he has been to 15 Patriots games at Gillette Stadium and they were all wins. He said he plans to cheer on the Patriots, in person, in October. But it will be from the owner’s box.
