Professional Acivities

During early years I had left my hometown Dortmund for education and for my studys as a medical assistant (nurse), as a protestant deacon as well as a social-therapist (paramedical psychotherapist for psychosomatic and dependence-ill people).

Below some segments out of my professional development.

  • Managing director of the "Psychosozialen Beratungs- und Behandlungsstelle für Abhängigkeitskranke" (consultation ambulance for people with alcoholic and drug problems), Diakonisches Werk, Frankenthal/Pfalz
  • Teaching consultant (additional occupation), Berufsschule Frankenthal/Pfalz (vocational college)

  • Manager of the Press- and Public Relations Department and Public Information Officer (PIO) of the "Blumeninsel Mainau" ("Flower Island"), Konstanz
  • Personal adviser of the Count and Countess Lennart and Sonja Bernadotte family, Island of Mainau

In the year 1989 I made myself professional independent and founded a "Press- and Public Relations Agency" (later: "FirePublications/Feuerwehrpresse Wolfgang Jendsch) as a freelance journalist.

In that function I worked temporarly also for various newspaper- and magazine editorial staffs (among other Südkurier, Radolfzeller Wochenblatt, Stadtanzeiger Offenburg).

Later I limited myself exclusively to the working area "Brandschutz/Rettungsdienst" (Fire Service, Medical Rescue Service) and have worked up to my retirement in July 2014 as a journalist, special editor, photographer and publisher for significant international publishing houses (Fire Service) in Europe and in the USA - among others ...
