Meigan Daishi Kacir, age 20, passed away in her current home of Tallahassee, Florida on February 12. Meigan was born on November 12, 2000 in Guangzhou Province, China.

Meigan came into our family at 18 months old, and, in her time with us, was a constant reminder to us of God's loving providence and care. She constantly impressed us with her uproarious sense of humor, her talents for cooking and art, and her willingness to ask hard questions about important truths. Having recently transferred from Valencia College to FSU, she was pursuing a degree in International Relations, as well as studying Mandarin. Meigan worked at Bonefish Grill (both in her hometown of Winter Garden and in Tallahassee) and deeply enjoyed cooking in her spare time. When not at work or school, Meigan was an avid fan of K-pop, often spending hours memorizing and performing choreographies. Graced with compassion for the suffering of others and an advocate for mental health and suicide prevention, Meigan was a gift to us for every day God allowed her to remain in our lives.

Meigan is survived by her parents, Russ and Nancy; her siblings, Chiara, Ernesto (spouse: Shawntel), Omar (spouse: Naomi), Karen (spouse: Cutter) and Jordan; her grandparents, Ivan, Betty and Luisa; and her beloved cat of 16 years, Smokey.

A service to commemorate Meigan's life will be held at Church at the Cross (700 Good Homes Rd, Orlando, FL 32818) at 9 a.m. on Saturday, February 20.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the National Alliance of Mental Illness or to Live Action https://www.liveaction.org/

Meigan and I met through Valencia in our math class and immediately her and I got along. 2 years later she reconnected with me and after that me and her would spend many nights together playing games, nights where we should have both been asleep. They were some good times. Frequently me and her would would talk and just chat about life, and send each other snaps and memes. I'm heartbroken to hear about the news.

My heart goes out to the family, and anyone else who was touched by this charming soul. I hope she finds peace and solace on the other side and can rest easy.

I worked with Meigan at Chipotle and boy was she a joy to be around. She was always so full of life making everyone around her smile. My greatest memory with Meigan is when we attempted to make the world’s largest burrito and it was actually a success! So much love and laughter and always a good time with her. I’m so saddened to have to say goodbye to her but I now know that she’s at peace and with God. Love you Meigan! Until we meet again

Meigan was the only other girl cook at bonefish, I had the chance to cook with her for about two months. I saw her for the beautiful soul that she is, we would always talk anime or deep conversation and I felt a connection. One that didn't develop enough, because I never knew she was in pain, though I wish I did. She smiled, joked, and surprised me with her strength every time we worked. She cooked circles around me and would never ask for help. No one outright roasted me the way she did and I loved her for it, but the way she looked at me when i felt anxious or insecure it was as if she could sense the moment I was off. She was extra kind to me then. Always. Meigan was such a kind and deep soul. I wanted to know more, and I should have asked, but her impression will forever have an imprint on me. My deepest deepest condolences to all family and friends of Meigan.

I worked with Meigan at Bonefish Tallahassee. She is the wittiest young woman I have ever met. It’s not easy being one of the only females working on the back line of a restaurant, but she really knew how to hold her own! She was beautiful in everything she did, wildly intelligent, and her spirit will be so so missed among all of her coworkers.

I met Meigan while training... I remember thinking how bright her light shone, how strong she was... we joked, we laughed... we kept in touch when I went back to training with my longtime team. I will always remember how special she was. My heart breaks for her and for her family and all those who love her, but I know that bright light will always shine.

I met Meigan working at Chipotle. I remember thinking to myself a lot that she seemed like she could do great things. I remember when she started deadlifting competitively and cheering her on because she was able to make it to the Olympic Stage. She was just a kid who was ready to start her life.

I may not have been the closest to Meigan but she was like a little sister to me. Always cracking jokes and checking in on me and obviously making sure I knew she was better at grill than me haha. There’s nothing I can say that can take away the grief I or anyone else feels losing someone like Meigan but I can offer this one grim reminder. She isn’t hurting anymore. We should at least be able to find some comfort in that fact.

I met Meigan when I returned to chipotle after I had my daughter . My first impression was “ WOW she’s a beast!” and she really was. She was great at everything and I loved working with her. Meigan was full of life , strong , smart and loved. She was such a hard worker and wise beyond her years. Our thoughts & prayers are with you during this time of grief. She will forever be apart of our chipotle family and will truly be missed❤️

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”

Isaiah: 41:10, 13

I met Meigan at Longhorn. She was this ball of energy that I loved to be around. She was always chatting about something, asking questions, learning something new and having fun. She had a huge smile that I will always remember. Many prayers to her family and friends she was a sweet lovable woman that will be missed.
