Dear JVC Northwest community,
JVC Northwest staff are deeply saddened to share that recent FJV AmeriCorps member Eunjey Cho (Spokane ’12-13) passed away yesterday, September 18, 2013, in a cycling accident.
He and fellow FJV John McGuin (Spokane ’12-13) were cycling across the country, having left Spokane at the end of their service year, and were traveling to Eunjey’s hometown in New Jersey when Eunjey was struck by a car on their route through Colorado.
JVs and staff remember Eunjey as an individual full of life – beloved by all who knew him. While serving as a JV in Spokane, he quickly became known for his generosity, his gentleness, and his keen sense of humor. As part of their trek across the country, Eunjey and John raised money to support JVC Northwest.
We are extremely saddened by this tragic loss, and ask for your kind thoughts and prayers for Eunjey and his family and friends, John, and all those who were near and dear to Eunjey.
We will update our blog with details regarding service arrangements when we receive them. We encourage you to check back there for further information. We invite you to post your own memories and stories of Eunjey here or on the JVC Northwest facebook page.
Eunjey was a wonderful person, and he will be greatly missed. We are grateful for the JVC Northwest community as we gather together to grieve and celebrate Eunjey’s life.
JVC Northwest Staff
