services for eunjey cho

The funeral service for Eunjey Cho will be held on Saturday, September 28 at 11 am at Mather Hodge Funeral Home in Princeton, NJ. All are welcome to attend.

In lieu of flowers, Eunjey’s family request that donations be made in Eunjey’s name to The Stratton ABC Foundation, a charitable organization that runs an orphanage in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Eunjey stayed at the orphanage during his travels in Thailand, and according to his brother, this foundation “was near and dear to Eunjey’s heart . . . I can’t think of anything that would mean more to him.”

We are grateful to all who have offered their condolences and words of support in light of this tragedy. We will continue to offer prayers and hold closely all those who were near and dear to Eunjey. JVC Northwest will host a Portland memorial service in the coming weeks, and will update this blog when details are confirmed.
