Obituary for Hejian Chris Zhen

Hejian Chris  Zhen
Hejian Zhen of Holmdel, who often went by “Chris,” passed away on June 19, 2018 at the age of 58 years. He was born in Beijing, China, to a science fiction author and magazine editor. After ranking highly in a national math competition as a youth, he soon found himself attending Beijing University majoring in Physics where he made many lifelong friends. He continued his education at New York University, earning Master’s degrees in both Physics and Computer Science, pursuing a career in IT. After living in New York, he moved to Holmdel with his wife to raise a family where they have been living for the past few decades.

He was a self-described Game of Thrones superfan, frequent traveler, avid American football fan, and enjoyed arguing about current events. He enjoyed playing poker, blackjack, and sudoku. Even after injury, a perfect night for him would be a beer for dinner and a movie or three. He is survived by his wife, Jennie and two children, Kevin and Kaycie, and will be sorely missed by friends and relatives from around the world. A viewing and short memorial service will be held at Evergreen Memorial Funeral Home, 1735 Rt. 35, Middletown, NJ 07748 at noon on Sunday June 24 till 3pm.
