Julian Jensen (formerly Julian Lefay) is an American game developer of Danish descent who used to work on game audio. Julian played the keyboards in the band Russian Heat.

In 1988, Jensen started working at Bethesda Softworks as a Chief Engineer. While working there, he composed a few soundtracks such as Where's Waldo? and Wayne Gretzky Hockey for the NES. He also programmed some of Dragon's Lair: Escape From Singe's Castle on MS-DOS. He stayed with the company up until 1998 when he moved to Fenris Wolf as a Project Director. A year later, he worked at Bootprint Entertainment. After that, he worked as a web developer for various companies. At the beginning of 2011, Jensen returned to the video game industry working at Autumn Games as a Technical Director. Almost two years later, he did the same at Naaya, but in October 2013 left the company and has not returned to the game industry since, but instead works on software development for various companies.

Today, Jensen is currently the Chief Technical Officer for Licorice and resides in Montgomery Village, Maryland.
