Matt was a great man and a true hero to all of us. His passing will be felt by many of his friends.

A great shock to hear of Matt's passing. My condolences to the Fong family. He was Treasurer when I worked for the Health Facilities Authority and I always found him to be approachable, knowledgeable, and an outstanding public servant. I also went to school with his sister, Sue; my condolences to her as well.

To the Fong Family, especially Paula:

I am so sad to hear about Matt's passing. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to California and attended law school in LA. He was my law school "big brother" and mentor. I was so happy that our friendship grew over the years, and even with all his successes, he was still the same ole Matt-- big brother and mentor to me.

I will miss him terribly and have many fond memories of our friendship from law school to politics.

My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Much love,

Matt Fong was a great American who fought for less government and understood the challenges California faces. He knew what businesses needed to thrive; he was a great entrepreneur and friend. He really had a sense of what was wrong with the pension crisis having served as Chairman of the PBGC at the U.S. Dept. of Labor. It is so sad for our state that his voice was not able to be heard as we deal with pension crises at every level of our govenment. Matt Fong was a great mentor to me and someone who gave me exceptional advice both as a political appointee at the Labor Department and as a candidate for office in Assembly District 15 - a district his mom represented many years ago. I shall miss him greatly as he was one of the greatest political minds California has produced. Our state mourns and we should all honor his legacy and comfort his family at this very difficult time. Rest in Peace, Matt Fong. Your legacy shall live on.
