Longtime San Francisco Political Activist Rose Pak died Sunday, 9/18. She was found deceased at home this morning, and the San Francisco Medical Examiner is still investigating.
As was well known, Ms. Pak returned earlier this year from a six-month stay in China, where she received a kidney transplant.
“We are all in a state of shock, and profoundly sad, at this moment,” said Gordon Chin, a founder and former director of Chinese Community Development Center, who is speaking on behalf of Ms. Pak’s family and close friends.“We will announce more details as they emerge, but right now we ask that the public and the media respect the privacy of the family, and give us some space,” Mr. Chin said. Mr. Chin said when more is known about Ms. Pak’s passing, the media will be informed. He said funeral plans would also be announced at a later date.
