Announcing the Passing of Kaiji Jeffrey Schneider

Dear friends and sangha:

It is with profound sorrow that we are announcing the death of our beloved friend, long time resident priest, and recently retired Outreach Coordinator Kaiji Jeffrey Schneider. Acknowledging this great loss, we extend our deepest sympathies to all who knew and cherished Jeffrey. In accordance with his wishes, there was no sitting with his body or formal service.

As we navigate through this difficult time, we are in close consultation with Jeffrey’s family to ensure that we honor his wishes while providing an opportunity for his friends, family, and sangha to come together, express their grief, and celebrate Jeffrey’s life.

We will keep you informed as the arrangements are finalized by the family for honoring Jeffrey’s memory. In the meantime, we encourage you to take care of yourself and each other at this very tender time.
