"While we mourn this public servant taken too soon, we look back with pride on all the good she was able to accomplish in her 32 years on earth. A passionate defender of the environment, Chona spearheaded a number of projects at the California Environmental Protection Agency to clean the air we breathe and the water we drink. Her colleagues remember this passion, matched only by her generosity as she would happily lend a hand to any teammate in need.
"We grieve alongside Chona's husband Eugene, her parents, her brothers and all those of us who cherished her. We will never forget Chona as we continue her work toward a California for All."
