It is with a sad heart that we announce the passing of PATRICIA FUKUSHIMA, one of our most recognized colleagues on July 11, 2016.
Pat affectionately known as “Honey” to herfamily and old friends, started her life on April 8, 1943 in the US concentration camps for Japanese citizens in Manzanar, California. Her beginnings destined her for a lifetime fight for justice for all and especially children. Although not being blessed with a child of her own, she devoted decades of time and energy to all children, serving until recently on the Board of the Foundation for Early Childhood Education (Head Start) and earlier the board of the HollywoodSunset Free Clinic.
Pat is a 1980 graduate of UCLA School of Law and had been practicing for over 25 years, mainly in worker’s compensation. Pat is one of the Founders of LatinoComp and was one of the moving forces in the creation of the MABA Workers' Comp Subcommittee, the LAMAAA Chapter of CAAA, and the now famous LatinoComp Christmas Party.
Pat is survived by her companion/husband of 30 years, Jesus Cruz, sisters Yuri Long and Sumi Hughes, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
