We are deeply saddened by the passing of our friend and colleague, Ajay Ojha. Ajay was in Escuintla, Guatemala on November 12, 2014 while on a volunteer service mission helping build a secondary school there. He was 38.
He worked as a consultant for the federal government in Washington, DC, primarily assisting the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security with Program Management and Strategic Communications. He was very active in his community, serving on several boards including the Upakar Foundation, the South Asian Bar Association of North America Foundation, and the DC Commission on Asian and Pacific Island Community Development.
In lieu of flowers and to celebrate his life, an educational scholarship fund has been set up in his name through the Upakar Foundation and donations may be made at – http://www.upakarfoundation.org/named-scholarships/ajay-ojha-memorial
A memorial service in Washington, DC, is tentatively set for Wednesday evening, December 10th. Please register here if you will be attending:
