A special scholarship fund in Memory of Daniel Chuong, Founding Chair of Orange County Young Planners Group. The scholarship recipient will go to a young and emerging planner in the local section. 

Daniel Chuong, a transportation planner and life-long Angelino, a wonderful son, brother, husband, and friend to many, was tragically taken away from us on February 1, 2020 at the age of 34, while doing one of the things he loved. He and his brother, Jonathan were training for the Los Angeles Marathon in Santa Monica when he was struck by a car at Lincoln and Ocean Park in the early hours of the morning and succumbed to his injuries. He is survived by his wife, Linda Feng; his parents, Karen and Van Chuong; and his brother Jonathan Chuong.

Daniel was born in Monterey Park, CA on October 9, 1985. He was the oldest of two sons to Karen and Van Chuong. Daniel spent most of his childhood in El Monte until moving to Hacienda Heights in April of 2001. After high school, Daniel went on to study at the University of California, Irvine, where he graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Analysis and Design. Always striving to achieve more, he subsequently obtained a Master of Arts in Urban & Regional Planning in 2010 and a Master of Science in Transportation Science in 2017. At the time of his passing, he had just started a new position as a Senior Transportation Planner with the Los Angeles Metro. Daniel was a conqueror of challenges, seeker of adventures, collector of experiences, learner of the world, and lover of life. He was an avid runner, recreational gamer, Lakers/Kobe/basketball enthusiast, aspiring world traveler, closet nerd, wannabe foodie, and ultimate Pokémon Master. He always wanted to try new things, explore new places,savor new foods, and overcome new obstacles. He was genuinely happy, kind, friendly, and generous to everyone that knew him. His infinite curiosity, childlike innocence, and goofy personality was something that was both endearing and frustrating to those around him. People will forever remember his ever-radiant smile, positive energy, and unwavering optimism. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
