Chris passed away on December 25, 2020. He is survived by his husband Anh Quang Nguyen, as well as several siblings, nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

Chris had a long and distinguished career on Capitol Hill. He was also a strong Hamline booster: planning alumni events in Washington DC; welcoming students, faculty, staff, and alumni to his office in the Rayburn Office Building; returning to campus during Homecoming and Alumni Weekend to celebrate and speak to political science classes; and more.
In honor of Chris’s relationship with Hamline, we are raising funds in Chris’s name with the goal of creating a scholarship fund. This legacy will be a tribute to our friend and provide Hamline students with the opportunity to live their passions as Chris did. Questions may be directed to
