VLS Mourns Alumnus Stephen W. Ching, Jr. '93
It is with great sadness that we share with you the unexpected passing of Stephen W. Ching, Jr. '93
, of Bryn Mawr, PA. Ching passed away, on Friday, October 12, 2012.
After graduating from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, Ching earned a master's degree in philosophy in international law and affairs from Cambridge University, where he received first honors with distinction, before attending Villanova Law.
Following his graduation from law school in 1993, Ching joined Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel as an associate, where he built his practice, becoming a partner in 2003. His practice was geared toward commercial litigation, transactional work for international clients and Chinese joint venture law.
"Stephen accomplished so much in his career; however he did it without sacrificing his family life," Obermayer Managing Partner Robert Whitelaw said. "Stephen believed if you were dedicated to something you found the time whether it was for family or work. He found time for both. He worked round the clock to accommodate his international clients' needs and, of course, he was always there for his family. Unlike other professionals, he enjoyed a successful and well-balanced personal life and career."
Ching is survived by his wife, Theresa M. DiNubile-Ching and their three children, Stephen, 14, Ellison, 13, and Michael, 11; his parents Stephen W. Ching, Sr. and Nancy W. Ching; his brother Stanley (Cherry) Ching and his sister Stephanie (Eugine) Kim, and his nieces and nephews.
A funeral mass was held on October 17, 2012 at St. Thomas of Villanova Main Chapel on the campus of Villanova University, Lancaster Ave., Villanova, PA., followed by Interment at Calvary Cemetery.
