“Our goal is to help graduates achieve their goals…”
It is with very heavy heart that the Board of Directors of the Farrington Alumni & Community Foundation report the sudden passing of our President, David Jeong, on February 22, 2014.
David was busy on preparation for our 38th annual FACF luncheon that was scheduled for March 2, 2014 at the Japanese Cultural Center. With the assistance of the entire Board of Directors, the luncheon was successfully held, but David’s absence was truly felt by everyone.
Following in the footsteps of Kellet Min who served as the President of FACF from 1976 till 1995, David became President in 1996 and honorably served until his passing.
During his 18-year tenure as President, David’s goal was to guide FACF into a position of financial strength through memberships, donations, and wise investment of the monies entrusted to FACF. David held to this mantra religiously. Even as FACF consistently provided to Farrington students for various fund requests, the core capital continued steady growth. The Board of Directors are left with a secure financial picture thanks to David’s leadership.
Thank you for your guidance and wisdom David. You will be truly missed. Our happiness is the knowledge that you are reunited with your wife, Cherry, and happily smiling again. Rest in Peace, David.
