Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Our beloved second-generation brother, Jacob Yoon Myung Park, of the New York KEA Church community in New Jersey, passed to the spiritual world on Friday, April 21, after a battle with cancer. Jacob has been an integral part of the KEA leadership team, and has been very involved and dedicated to his community, to his brothers and sisters, and to his own family. His wisdom and care will be forever cherished.

We send our prayers and encouragement for Jacob's wife Soon Im Choi, his children HyungSam (Sam), HyungMan (Mike), and HyungKook (Tommy), and the rest of his family.

Let us join in support of Jacob's family, and pray for his victorious transition to a glorious new life in the spiritual world, knowing that our True Father and many saints are waiting for him with open hearts and arms.

Jacob was born on August 14, 1969 (July 2 by the lunar calendar) in YeonCheon, GyongGi Do in Korea, to Do Hee Park and Hee Seok Kwak, a 124 Blessed Couple, as the third of five children.

In December of 1984 their family moved to Seattle, Washington, where he graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1988. A year later he enrolled in the University of Washington. During the college years, Jacob served in various capacities, as a Second Generation Workshop staff, a Boat Captain in the Ocean Challenge in Gloucester, and conducted many fundraising activities on MFT.

On August 25, 1992, Jacob was blessed with Soon Im Choi as one of the 200 Second Generation Couples’ Blessing. They have three sons together: HyungSam (Sam), HyungMan (Mike), and HyungKook (Tommy).

In 1995, he graduated from Georgia State University with Degrees in Mathematics and Computer Information Systems. In 2000 he started working at Manhattan Center as computer programmer, and in 2002 he started working on the purchase of the Greater New York KEA Church at North Haledon, NJ, which took two years to complete. In 2006 Jacob began his 11-year career as a KPMG computer programmer.

Throughout these years he has been involved in the growth and development of the KEA church in NJ. Since 2014, Jacob has been instrumental in the expansion project of the KEA Church Building, and in 2016, he became Chairman of the Board for the Greater New York KEA Church.

Jacob ascended on April 21, 2017 at 10:56 a.m. at Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, NJ. His family, friends and his entire community are praying for him and wish him a victorious transition to his new eternal life.

    God Bless You Mr. Jacob Park. Your life here in this womb of air will be missed by everyone, even those of us that did not personally know you. I pray your travel to meet with Father will be glorious and without error. I pray for you wife Soon Im Choi, pray her heart is full of gratitude for having you enter into her life. Your sons, HyungSam (Sam), HyungMan (Mike), and HyungKook (Tommy), I pray will also be filled with gratitude for without you they would not be. You are a King Jacob and will forever be loved and missed by those who were fortunate to have known you.

    To the Park family:
    Please receive our deepest and sincere thoughts and prayer at this challenging time; I always had the greatest admiration for Jacob because of his relentlessness to do God’s will express through his dedication to the [any]community he was part of, never waiting for directions to come from higher leadership but always being a step ahead – this is the kind of people Heavenly Parent seeks to raise, teach and embrace, for himself was a great husband, father, teacher and inspirer; and so, as a community we lost a valuable son, brother, husband, parent, uncle and true friend.

    Heavenly Parent , your humble servant has done well, he was good, he was faithful, he has done more than some do in their lifetime… Please, allow him to share your happiness coming home to you… As You will! Aju!

    My goodness! So sad. I remembered very well when he was in Gloucester in 1988 encouraging us how in not just how to catch tuna, but to be someone special always on True Parent`s side. May God bless and confort all the Jacob Park`s family forever.
    With so pain, but much love

      박윤명 장로님 !
      오랜 인연은 아니었어도 한번씩 찾아간 뉴욕 한인교회를 통하여 알았고 @. 특히 부모님이신 124가정 박도희 곽경희 님은 오래전 한국에서부터 깊은 인연을 갖고 있었지요.
      한참 무르익어간 인생삶속에서 우리가 아직 경험 못한 영원 무궁한 새로운 세계로 먼저가심은 더 크게 쓰시고자하심이 확실합니다.
      그곳에서는 더이상 육신의 고통도없고 이곳에서못다한 큰뜻을 펼치리라 확신합니다.
      위독하다는소식에 밤길을 가르며 아버님을 필라에서
      황급히 모셔다드리고 돌아와 다음날 한국일정으로 시끄러운 고국 땅을 밞은지 한달이 채 못되었는데 식구님들의 간곡한 기도 정성을 뒤로한채 새세계로 가셨읍니다 .
      한달후 돌아가 재회할수있길 기대했는데 …
      마지막 가는모습 볼수없음이 심히 안타깝습니다.이제 육신의 고통없이 훨훨날라 하고자하는 뜻을 펴시고 남은가족들 어려움없이 보살펴주시고 먼저가신 참 아버님을 모시고 화합하는 우리교회되게 이끌어 주십시요!

    I remember Yoon Myung from many years ago as a very special, warm, sincere and gentle person. He has stuck in my mind and will continue to do so. All God’s blessings upon him and the family that he built from true love. Tyler
