Yong Suk Choi

May 8, 1962 — May 2, 2024

Dr. Yong Suk Choi was a devoted husband and father, and an esteemed professor. Born on May 8, 1962, in Seoul, Korea, he immigrated to the United States in 1990, to pursue higher education, earning a Master of Business Administration from Ohio State University and a doctoral degree from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. In 2002, he joined California State University, Bakersfield, as a Professor of Management. Over the span of 22 years, he touched the lives of many students and colleagues and became a respected academic in his field.

He is survived by his loving wife, Seunghee, and his two cherished children, daughter Hannah and son Jason. His untimely departure due to a sudden illness has left a void in the hearts of his family, friends, and colleagues who had the privilege of knowing him.

A memorial service to honor and celebrate Dr. Choi's life will be held on Friday, August 16, 2024, at 2:00 PM at East Lawn Elk Grove Memorial Park. We invite all who knew and loved him to join us in remembering the remarkable person he was.
