A Memorial Visitation for Terry Chung, 44, of Kildeer, will be held from 1:00 pm until the time of the Memorial Service at 4:00 pm on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at the Ahlgrim Family Funeral Services, 415 S. Buesching Road, Lake Zurich.
All who knew Terry, loved Terry. He was always happy to lend a helping hand or brainstorm a solution to whatever problem was brought his way. He was a fixer of all things, and his work as a bio-medical engineer combined his love of tinkering with his hope to develop ideas and devices that could help others feel and live better. One of his previous VPs described Terry’s mind as “maniacally genius,” and from this brilliance, came over a dozen patents for medical devices. Terry also enjoyed golf, working on cars, driving fast and faster, traveling, and being surrounded by friends and family. Terry also was the best of husbands and fathers. He was a devoted husband who shared a love with his wife that most could only hope to experience. Together for twenty-two years and married for almost seventeen, Terry and Jasmin rarely spent time apart and were true partners in life, love, and learning. He also took immense pride in being able to provide for his family and offering his children opportunities he never got to experience growing up. His love and commitment for his children was evidenced by his never missing a competition, concert, performance, or milestone. As a father, he taught his children the value of presence, hard work, respect, loyalty, education, empathy, honesty, and generosity.
Terry was the beloved husband of Jasmin Chung (nee Hortillano); cherished father of Cooper (14), Atticus (11), and Ellinor (9); fond son of Tom and Jennifer (nee Lee) Chung; loving brother of Tammy (Brian) Kim. He is also profoundly grieved by his family-in-love, the Hortillano Family: brother Jason (Jeannie), brother Jasper (Jennifer), and sister Janice (Darcy) Cleaveland, and parents Larry and Fe (nee Agbada). His loss will be greatly felt in the lives of the many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, grand aunts/uncles, and dozens of friends-made-family that he leaves behind.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Make-A-Wish Foundation. Terry loved all the children in his life and a donation to www.wish.org would continue his legacy of generosity to and love for children – especially for those going through a difficult illness.
