Mark Jorgensen founded Desert Solace in 2011 with a vision of creating a place where those suffering from the effects of pornography addiction and other sexually related addictions could seek recovery in an environment of compassion, empathy, and hope.

Mark was born in Logan Utah and grew up on a farm in Cache Valley. Following two years of missionary service in Taiwan, Mark graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Business Management. He has spent the last 20 years as owner and operator of Keith Jorgensen’s, a retail music company dedicated to enhancing the lives of people through making music. Mark and his wife Jerri are the proud parents of eight children and seven grandchildren. He enjoys spending time with his wife and family on the beautiful bike routes, golf courses, and hiking trails of southern Utah.

Mark’s passion for the cause of recovery from pornography addiction is fueled by his personal journey from the depths of hopelessness, despair, and shame to the joy and hope healing can bring.

“Though this addiction is soul-wrenching, I want to show others what I have learned and know is true – that the renewal of lives and relationships is truly possible.”
