In Memory of Krysten Hicks

The family of Krysten Hicks has asked that donations be made in her memory to the Chester Foundation.  We will honor her life with a special fund to support disadvantaged animals in need of emergency medical care.

But first, a little about Krysten..

Krysten was born in 1979 in San Jose.  She had a distinguished legal career, including serving as the Assistant City Attorney for Citrus Heights, Pittsburg and Colusa.  She developed an expertise in many areas of municipal law, gave countless presentations and speeches, and had numerous articles published.

She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on September 20th after a courageous six year battle with Inflammatory Breast Cancer.

Krysten would want to be remembered not with sadness, but for her enthusiasm, wisdom, kindness, quick wit, and her love for life.  She will be sorely missed by family, friends, clients and all who met her.

Many thanks for honoring Krysten’s wishes to support The Chester Foundation.  Her memory will live on in the animals who are saved through the work of our foundation.
