Jeyakumar (Kumar) Shanmugam, 1959-2009 (updated)


According to multiple reports on Facebook, ALC rider Kumar Shanmugam died Tuesday, although I have no information on the circumstances.

Kumar was a regular participant in Mountain View and Sunnyvale training rides. He was seriously injured in spring 2008 during a training ride from King City to Quadbuster and was unable to ride in ALC7, but he recovered and returned to training rides later that year.

He was the director of engineering at Cypress Semiconductor, and he was married. My condolences to Kumar's wife, family, and friends. I will miss his enthusiasm.


In memory of Jeyakumar Shanmugam, the memorial service will take place at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, December 15, 2009 at First Unitarian Church of San Jose, 160 North 3rd Street, San Jose, California 95112. A reception will follow at a reception hall adjacent to the church.

Parking is available at the 3rd Street Parking Garage, located on the corner of North 3rd Street and East Saint James Street, If using lightrail, use the Saint James Park Station.

His wife, Jenifer, has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made online in memory of Jeyakumar Shanmugam to The South Asian Heart Center Fund http://www.southasianheartcenter.org/
