Ag One and the Jordan College mourns the loss of alumna, advisor and friend Karen Morais.  After a short battle with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a rare type of bone marrow cancer, she passed away on December 25 with her close family by her side.

Karen served on the Ag One Board for 12 years, serving as president in 1992. Since 2005 she served as financial advisor to the Board as well as volunteering on the Ag Boosters BBQ Committee (since 1986), the Community Salute Committee (since 1997), the Fresno-Madera Wine Tasting Committee (2005-2010) and she joined the Common Threads Committee last year (she was honored in 2015).

The family is planning a Celebration of Life on February 16, 2019 at 10 a.m. in the Henry Madden Library at Fresno State.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests remembrances can be made in her memory to Ag One to support deserving students and programs in the Jordan College, to the Fresno Art Museum, Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Fresno, or the charity of your choice.
