Maybe not, but he did patent it. From the 1981 Jensen Patent:
The "Jensen" Patent US 4,287,479: http://www.google.com.ar/patents/US4287479The reactive network associated with each emitter element preferably comprises an inductor and a resistor, coupled in a shunt configuration. Thus, at relatively high frequencies, the impedance of the network is roughly equivalent to that of the resistor and the gain of the stage is determined by the sum of each resistor and the internal emitter resistance re of the corresponding transistor, while at relatively low frequencies, the network impedance is essentially zero and the gain of the stage is determined by the internal emitter resistance re, by itself. As a result, for frequencies less than the frequency at which the emitter resistor and inductor are equal in impedance, the stage will produce less noise and will provide an increased open-loop gain, whereby less distortion of the signal is realized. Additionally, since the presence of the inductor does not affect the impedance of the network at relatively high frequencies, i.e., at frequencies near the unity-gain frequency, ft, of the op amp circuit, stability of the circuit is not adversely affected thereby.

In 1966 Dick Burwen of Analog Devices designed the ADI Model 121 "Wideband DC Op Amp" with, you guessed it, emitter inductors.
