Jean, an ABC, was born in Yuma, Arizona. Her husband, Ben Ng, is a past president of the LA Eng Family Benevolent Asscciation, past-grand president/western region and now an elder of the National Eng Family Ass'n. Although Jean only marginally understands much of Chinese languages spoken at the Association's meetings, she is a strong supporter of the Ass'n and attends many of the association meetings. A full-time homemaker for the past 10-plus years, she has helped raised 3 grown sons, takes care of all of the household chores, including the fruit trees and the yard, thus freeing time for Ben to devote much of his non-work hours participating in numerous Chinatown community activities. Hopefully on this trip she'll get a chance to visit , the place of her father's birth.
