Statement on the passing of Matthew K. Fong, American Patriot and National Leader

Mitch and I extend our deepest condolences to Paula, Matt, Jr., Jade, and their family on the passing of their beloved husband and father.  A devoted family man, Matt is a dedicated public servant, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and pioneer and trailblazer for the Asian Pacific American community and all Americans.  Throughout his career, he mentored and cultivated future generations of leaders to lead our country.  His many contributions to our country and society will never be forgotten.  Mitch and I join the legions of admirers and friends in mourning the passing of a historic public leader, American patriot, and altruistic humanitarian.
