The Student Veterans Organization tabled near Siskiyou Hall Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to accept cards and letters addressed toward Jimmy Yang or his family.

Yang, 30, a Chico State student and U.S. Army Veteran, died Saturday.

The organization sold Valentine’s Day roses as a club fundraiser, also in hopes of providing Yang’s family a gift with a portion of the proceeds, Smith said.

The roses sold out by noon, and the jar dedicated solely to Yang gained about $20, Smith said.

Students, faculty and staff are invited to send letters and cards of condolences, according to a campus-wide email. Letters can be addressed to Yang’s parents, Jo and Sung Yang, at 195 Matadero Drive, Sunnyvale, CA 94086.

A private service is being held for Yang, according to the email.
