Message from HKU Alumni Office
We are all heartbroken with Alumnus Ken Leung's tragic death and the passing away of his two daughters. Many alumni, from Toronto and Sydney and all over the world, have asked to send their regards to Mrs Amy Leung, and her son Jason who is still in ICU. The Industrial Engineering Class of 77 representatives would like to report the following, and let's all pray for Jason's speedy recovery.
"From Dennis Ng, Industrial Engineering 77:
My wife Winnie and I joined the HKU representatives comprising Pro-Vice-Chancellor Prof Chow Shew-ping, Ms Bernadette Tsui and Ms Janice Chan in visiting Amy in the Tuen Mun Hospital in the morning of Friday, Aug 27.
To our relief, Amy looked good despite a long night to stand by Jason who had surgery operation shortly after return from the Philippines. Very impressively, she seems to be capable to keep calm in this stressful situation, and know perfectly well what she is doing. She went even further to wish for all of us and the community to leave the tragic memories behind and look to a brighter future.
We told her alumni from far and wide have wanted to bring her warmest wishes and support (Winnie took the opportunity to bring also regards from the teachers, students and parents of HKMA Li Kwok Po College which was Jason and Jessie's mother school). She appreciates the words and gestures made towards her and Jason by everyone, including the general public, and the memorial service that took place in Ng Wah College on Thursday (I handed her the programme). We also told her we have set up a scholarship in memory of Ken in the University's IMSE (Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering) since Ken was very supportive to the Department. We all miss him.
Ken's younger sister is staying with Amy in the hospital and we can see the good support of both Ken and Amy's family in coping with their sufferings together.
We didn't visit Jason but were met by Dr Fong To-sang, Chief of Neuro-surgery who flew to Manila to bring Jason home and now looks after him with meticulous care. (Dr Fong entered HKU in the same year as we and Ken did.) Many other staff in the hospital are around to help with the numerous urgent and varied needs, and they come forward not only with their professionalism but also enthusiasm and heart. Professor Yuen Kwok-yung is also there. The Government is 100% behind with organised efforts. Jason is in very good hands.
Let us pray for Jason and Amy. May Ken, Doris and Jessie rest in peace."
