On November 22, 2019, Peggy passed away after spending a month in the hospital fighting complications from Lupus, an autoimmune disease. She leaves behind her husband, Jay Tsai, and two young daughters, Ashley and Kourtney, in addition to her sister, Catherine Lee and parents, Spencer and Susie Chen.
Peggy was an unwavering, constant light to her family, friends, and coworkers. As a loving mother, she obsessed over the smallest details to make her daughters’ birthday parties and other holidays and traditions extra special. She was Jay’s beloved soulmate, fellow dreamer, and travel companion. Peggy was a friend who truly listened and understood, but never judged—she consistently put the needs of others before her own. At work, she possessed a rare, natural ability to empower her team and transform her vision into reality. She is admired for her many passions and talents, whether baking perfectly shaped macarons from scratch or capturing the quiet yet meaningful moments from behind a camera lens. With unspeakable sadness for a life that ended too soon, for daughters who are too young to be motherless, and for dreams and plans that were left unfulfilled, we ask that you help us celebrate Peggy by sharing your stories of how you will remember her.
Thank you for all the support, love, and concern. The Tsai family requests that, in lieu of flowers, they would like donations to be made in Peggy's name to Lupus Research Alliance through the link below.
