Sean Chung Memorial & Chung Family Fund

Our Haycock/Falls Church community lost an incredible dad, husband, friend, and neighbor when Sean Chung (46) tragically drowned in a fishing accident on May 28, 2021. Sean leaves behind his wife and daughter (9), as well as many loving family members, friends, and co-workers.
 
A devoted father and husband, Sean always had time for his family. Family was truly everything to him. In fact, some of his happiest times were spent playing with his daughter. He was the epitome of a doting father, and he loved watching his daughter grow into the caring, thoughtful, and inquisitive young lady she is today. He was her strongest supporter, always encouraging her to pursue her many interests and explore new passions.
 
Sean was also a proud U.S. Air Force veteran, who served his country honorably overseas. His commitment to service never waned. Sean always placed others before himself and gladly lent a helping hand whenever it was needed. He was a dedicated friend and a kind and giving neighbor.

We are organizing this fundraiser to help Sean's family meet the initial and unanticipated costs of his death. While we cannot take away the pain and grief of this young family, we can help ensure that they do not face financial challenges.

Our fundraising efforts are especially critical due to the unexpected nature of Sean's death at such a young age. We want his wife and daughter to know that the community can--and will--support them through this challenging time. Every gift--no matter how small--helps. One hundred percent of the contributions will be given directly to the family to cover immediate expenses. 

Please keep Sean's wife and daughter and his extended family in your thoughts and prayers during this most difficult of times.  On behalf of the Chung family, thank you in advance for your love, support, and generosity.
