The famly of J. Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador killed in Libya last week who was a 1978 graduate of Piedmont High School, has established a memorial website at www.rememberingchrisstevens.com. It is meant "to capture the memories of people touched by Chris, far and near," the site says.
"Chris had a passion for building bridges between the people of the United States and the Middle East," the site says. "In this spirit, a fund has been established in his name to support this important, yet unfinished, endeavor."
You may contribute to the fund via Network for Good.
Stevens will also be honored during the half-time program at the Cal Homecoming football game on Oct. 6, according to Deborah Murphy of the University of California, Berkeley's office of university relations. Stevens graduated from UC Berkeley in 1982.
