Jerico Ang: Remembering a Life Well-Lived

BALM | October 31, 2021


December 17, 1980 – October 19, 2021

Jerico was a loving son, brother, husband, father, and friend to many. If you’ve been around the BALM for any time at all, you have likely been blessed by his loving, calm demeanor and willingness to serve.

Words cannot begin to express the depth of our love for Jerico and now, of our grief at his loss.

In the BALM, we live life in community. So, as a community, we will come together on Thursday, November 4, 2021 at 9:00pm ET to remember Jerico, to honor his life and memory, and to both grieve and celebrate in community. Here is the link to the memorial.

We are inviting everyone to share a memory of Jerico in the comments, at the memorial, or both.

Jerico – thank you for being a beautiful, loving part of our journey. We will miss you.

  1. I only knew Jerico for about 10 months. But, in that short time, I got to work with him often and learn how great of person he really was. He was always there to offer his help. He was so kind and thoughtful; he was constantly asking how my wife and newborn son were doing. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

    1. Jericho was a consistently kind and gentle man. I remember when I lead gentle yoga for one of the retreats, he reached out to me to say how much he enjoyed it. Totally unexpected and very thoughtful and so appreciated . He was the epitome of a dedicated reliable and dependable part of the BALNm When you needed him, he was there. I’m so sorry for his loss My deepest sympathy goes out to his family and I pray that we keep these sweet memories of him in our hearts always.

  2. Jerico was so much more than a coworker. He was a friend. We spent hours a day on Zoom and Skype, sometimes working on projects and sometimes just being people. We talked to each other’s kids and spouses. Josh loved talking to him about video games!

    Jerico was the type of person who was always ready, willing, and able to help and to serve. If he didn’t know something, he would find out.

    I was blessed by him as a student, as a BALM community member, as a faculty and staff member, and as a friend. I miss him every day and I thank God that He allowed by life’s path to cross with Jerico’s life’s path because I am better for having known him.

  3. Jerico played an important role in our BALM family. He was always quick to respond to my emails, helping to answer my questions or solve a problem that I encountered. He had a “can do” attitude that I really appreciated too. We will be forever grateful for how he contributed to our BALM family and he will be deeply missed!

  4. Jericho was always so kind and helpful. His warm smile and greeting always made me feel so welcomed. His tech support skills were wonderful. May God’s peace,comfort and strength carry his family through this season of grieving and May his memory be forever a blessing.

  5. Jerico’s dedication, engagement and energy he brought to his work & interactions with us went beyond being a co-worker. He became part of the BALM family. Whenever our organization grew and evolved, and whenever a family made progress in their recovery, Jerico contributed to it. And it is for his commitment and love that he had that I will be forever grateful.
    We love you, Jerico “all the way!”

  6. Jerico, thank you for ever reminding me to keep Be A Loving Mirror close to my heart. I will do my best to honor your memory as a BALMer. Knowing you made me a better person…

  7. listening to the words spoken tonight “over and about” Jerico’s life-what a gift he had and was to so many. What greater legacy for his children to know that their father supported/collaborated/enhanced a mission that aims to recover and save lives–no more noble a cause can one have. I never had the pleasure to communicate with him personally but I benefited from his gifts and devotion each and every time I joined online with the BALM community. Thank you Jerico and my condolences to his family for their deep loss.

    1. Jerico, thinking of you today, like most days. I’m not sure why I never signed your page. Maybe it just took a bit to process. Thank you for being the kind and loving human you were to all of us. Still praying for your family, as promised!
