Jamie Phannavong, our amazing Chief Financial Officer, suddenly passed away in September. Jamie served CaringMatters at the heart of our operations for 21 years. Her skilled guidance and practical approach to everything from financial management, accountability, governance, and transparency helped the organization evolve in critical ways. As a result, CaringMatters has met the challenges of the pandemic and continues serving the community through times of complicated illness and unprecedented grief.
In Jamie’s honor and memory, the CaringMatters Board of Directors has created a special fund, The Jamie Phannavong Memorial Fund, designated for staff development to perpetuate Jamie’s example of excellence.
Thank you to our community for your steadfast and compassionate support as we grieve the loss of a dear friend and cherished colleague. Through this fund, we pledge to honor Jamie’s memory through our work and uphold her legacy of devoted service to the community.
