“With our deepest sorrow, we regret to inform the NAPCA family that David L. Kim, our President and CEO passed peacefully late Wednesday night at home. We are grateful his family was present to offer comfort and say their last goodbyes. We offer our sincerest condolences to his wife Kyungi, his son Turner and his family.
David provided leadership to NAPCA for two decades as our earliest corporate supporter, Chairman, member of the board, and President and CEO.
He was a trailblazer in the development of multicultural marketing to the AANHPI communities. He served as a board member or advisor to dozens of non-profits dedicated to the empowerment and inclusion of our communities. We are truly grateful that he chose NAPCA to conclude his remarkable career as CEO.
Our community has lost a leader, who was truly dedicated to providing equal access to all services and benefits regardless of where you were born or what language you spoke.”
The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers that, a contribution be made to the David L. Kim Go Fund Me.
