Stella was in my third grade class and my nickname for her was “Stellar”, because she was. Beautiful, kind and intelligent. My heart broke when I heard of her death and it is bittersweet to read notes from her friends. It is obvious she continued to be a joy to others throughout her life. Gone too soon, my prayers and love to her friends and family.

I had the enormous pleasure of having Stella as my student for two years in my upper level Spanish language classes. From the first moment I met her I knew she was a great student, but it did not take me long to realize that she was also a kind,, caring and amazing human being. I got to know Stella even better during her senior year when we talked about her plans for college . I remember how happy she was when she was accepted at the university, when she told me the news with a big smile. I am sad to know that she will not touch more lives like she did mine, that she will not bring joy to others with her music and kindness. Stella will always be in my heart. My deepest condolences to her family.

I met Stella through a mutual friend before coming into middle school with her. We didn’t have any classes together, but she always greeted me with warmth and kindness. We both shared passion in music, and I remember she actively participated in music and service and I was always fond of her for her commitment. We ended up at the same high school, which was when we became closer and I learned more about her. She was in my English class and was always offering help when I needed it, always hard working, and so incredibly altruistic. We had lunch together everyday after our English class in a group of friends. I never saw her around without her violin. She was respected and loved from all of her teachers, especially orchestra directors. She contributed so much to her communities: friend groups, orchestras, volunteer groups, and more. I ended up moving across the country in the middle of the year but she made sure I knew that I will be missed. She wanted to get a picture of us together in front of the school on my last day at Torrey Pines. We kept in touch on and off throughout high school, and we had recently reconnected again just a few months ago. I miss her so much, she was one of the kindest people I had in my life.

Stella was a wonderful student but even more importantly she was an amazing human being. She was always very humble and just a great sport. She was so helpful to me as a teacher and was willing to go above and beyond. Stella was kind, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. Stella was the person that we want our kids to be like. She is missed and it saddens me that she was taken so young. She was an asset to humanity and had a bright future ahead. Rest in peace young lady. My condolences to the family during this trying time. If you would send me your email address I would be happy to send you a video in which I have of Stella.

Kind regards,

Stella is one of my older daughter’s best friend during her elementary school years, and they meet up almost every morning with a couple other neighborhood friends outside our home before walking to school which is across the street. I always remember her as a gentle, sweet, kind, mature and confident girl who is not afraid to be different even from the way she dress. She was also kind to her friend’s ( my daughter’s ) younger sister telling her stories. It’s cute to see her in bright dresses with hair pieces that makes her looked like a princess. I last saw her picture doing presentation during her freshman at John Hopkins wearing a green dress with a hair piece. We love her and she will always be a princess in my memory.

I was extremely fortunate to have Stella in my AP Spanish class with Profe Youngblood. I remember how amazing of an artist she was when we had to make a banner representing ourselves and our ambitions. She was so kind and by far the smartest in the class. She and I became quite close as we sat at the same table and we bonded over our mutual love for the class as well as mutual friends. I will forever cherish the memories I have with her. I am sending well wishes and I know that Stella is in a better place.

“In loving memory of Stella Goohyun Chung, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. As Stella's second grade teacher I was honored to have her in my class and to have her as part of my life. She was a very special person, talented and intelligent with a kind heart. I fondly remember when she went with Mrs. Davis, the principal, and I to Cox News to make a video about me. I will keep her in my heart always.”

Stella and I met in high school through our school’s television class. She and I became instantly close, bonding over korean culture and because she is genuinely a kind, sweet person. I miss working on projects with her and doing TPTV standups. We made news clips together and interviewed various people around the school. We grew close in such a short time and I was sad to be graduating because I knew I will miss her a lot. She reached out to me last semester when she was competing at Navy for taekwondo and wanted to meet up with me. Although we could not meet up then, I will cherish our memories together forever.

Stella is a loving friend and someone I have been blessed to know since third grade, with our original walking group to school. Her intelligent charisma is so charming, yet she still shows compassion to others and loves sharing her passions, from rabbits to comedy. I remember her creativity, both as an artist and a storyteller. Though she was articulate and distinctly mature as a leader, Stella also knew when to be silly and have fun. She has left such a positive impact on my life, and I miss her, too. May God embrace you in comfort through this time. My heart and prayers goes out to you.
