Bhumi Jensen (1983-2004)

Bhumi Jensen (Thai: ภูมิ เจนเซน, always called Bhumi คุณพุ่ม; or Khun Poom) (August 16, 1983 - December 26, 2004), was a grandson of King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, after whom he was named. He was the son of the king's eldest daughter, Princess Ubol Ratana Rajakanya, and her (former) American husband Peter Ladd Jensen[citation needed]. Bhumi Jensen, who was commonly known as Khun Poom, had autism. Jensen's condition brought about much awareness about autism in Thailand. Despite his father being a foreigner, Jensen was accorded royal status in Thailand. He attended Kasetsart University Laboratory School in Bangkok.

Jensen became a victim of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, while he and his family were vacationing at the La Flora Resort hotel in Khao Lak, Phang Nga province. He was drowned when the tsunami caused by the earthquake struck the coast of southern Thailand. His body was discovered on the beach the day following the tsunami. His uncle, the Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, identified the body and piloted the family back to Bangkok.
