On October 26th, our beloved brother Chi Lam was tragically struck by a reckless driver on South 10th Street. His friends, family, and fraternity brothers are devastated by the loss, and we have all come together to ensure that Chi's family is provided with proper financial support through these tough times.

Chi is remembered as a kind-hearted, genuine person that consistently made others smile. His gentle tone and encouraging words brightened the lives of many and left a significant impact on all those he had conversations with. He was also an avid photographer, artist, designer, runner, and great basketball player.

As a member of Delta Sigma Phi, he contributed a tremendous amount of time to bettering the brotherhood by serving as Chapter Historian. Chi attended every single event and took hundreds of pictures. He was a member of Lambda pledge class and initiated into the fraternity in the Fall of 2012.

Not only was Chi heavily involved in Delta Sigma Phi, but he was also a member of SJSU’s Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) and Union of North American Vietnamese Student Association (UNAVSA), an organization in which he was involved on a national scale. He devoted a great deal of time to the Vietnamese community on campus, and he will be remembered for his devotion and service.

Upon graduation, Chi was going to support his family financially so that his parents could finally retire. He was a 6th year Computer Engineering major on track to graduate this Spring.

All of the proceeds from our fundraising will go aiding his family in affording the expenses associated with this tragic event.


“Smile for the camera! 1...2...CHI!”

Hello all!

Thank you so much for all the generous donations. Every dollar has made a huge impact, and we are extremely close to reaching our goal.

Seeing the community come together to express condolences for such a genuine individual is truly uplifting, and our efforts would be fruitless without the tremendous outpour of support from all of you.

Chi's funeral will be held next Sunday, November 9th. For more information, visit the Facebook event page at:

My sister and I met Chi a couple years ago in our ballroom dancing class at SJSU. We only knew him that semester, however, he made a lasting impression on us both and we are at a loss for words after hearing about his passing. He was such a sweet, funny, and genuinely nice guy, and we will never forget him. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends and all the people that had an honor of knowing him (like us). Rest In Peace, Chi ♥ P.S. Thanks, again, for being my dance partner, Chi! It was a pleasure getting to know you.

To Chi Chi- the friend who made everyone laugh. The world is a dimmer place without your bright smile and big heart. You will always be alive in my memories and my thoughts and prayers go out to your family and loved ones. WAH TAH.
