Michael Walter Jung “Mike”

Michael Walter Jung “Mike”, 61, passed away in his home surrounded by family on October 7, 2022. Michael was born in January of 1961 in Baltimore, MD to William Henry Jung Jr “Bill” and Eulalia June Love “June”.

He leaves behind his daughter, Natalie Jung; son, Conor Jung; brothers: William Henry “Butch” Jung, III, wife Sharon, and Samuel “Sam” Jung; niece, Amanda Jung, husband Jeremy, and nephew, William Jung IV, wife Amanda. He is preceded in death by his parents.

Mike was raised in Jackson, Mississippi where he attended St Richards Catholic school. The family relocated to Richardson, Texas and eventually settled in El Lago, Texas in 1978. Michael is a proud graduate of the University of Houston. Upon graduation, Mike accepted a job with Chevron in 1985 and relocated to Concord, California. The family moved back to Houston in 1993 where Mike spent the remainder of his life.

He was employed for over 37 years at Chevron as a Financial Analyst. He was incredibly passionate about his work and was looked to as mentor for many. During his time with Chevron he had the opportunity to travel for business to Australia and Scotland. His impact was far reaching as he worked with groups around the globe, including in Malaysia and the Philippines. Mike also served on the board of directors for the CTECU Credit Union.

Mike was an amazing, supportive, and devoted father. He was a die-hard Houston Astros fan and a long-time season ticket holder for Houston Cougar football. He loved to golf and played many incredible courses during his life, including St Andrew’s in Scotland. Mike enjoyed riding his bike, regularly averaging a hundred miles a week. He loved to travel, taking his kids on trips all over the country and in Europe, providing treasured memories of time spent exploring.

Mike will be remembered fondly by those who loved him for his kindness, generosity, and humor. He made everyone feel welcomed and loved to swap stories over a beer or two. He will be profoundly missed and his legacy will live on in our hearts.

  1. I was very shocked and saddened to learn of Mike’s illness and passing. I had not spoken with Mike since the time of his father’s passing. We met in the 90s as fellow Chevron employees. Mike and I were both avid golfers, so we played many a round over the years, all the way into 2017. When I retired in 2020 I missed seeing Mike at work and having lunch with him. Very glad our paths crossed and I considered him my friend. I pray the good Lord’s love will comfort Mike’s family in this difficult and very sad time.

  2. We are very saddened to hear the news of Mike’s passing. It’s been awhile since we’ve been in touch but I worked with him back in the early 2000’s at Chevron and enjoyed being a peer and friend. We both liked a good game of golf. Condolences to his family and May he Rest In Peace.

  3. I have had the privilege and opportunity to work with Mike Jung since 1995 when he volunteered to serve on the Chevron Employees Credit Union Audit Committee. It didn’t take long to recruit Mike to the Board of Directors, which he was a director from 2000 until his death.
    I could always count on Mike to give level-headed recommendations/suggestions on financial business matters. He had a dry wit and kept you laughing at times.
    He made a point to call me after any board meeting he missed to follow-up on anything that might have occurred and he would jokingly mention he “wanted to know if he had been appointed or volunteered for another committee or project”.
    Mike will be greatly missed as my go to director on difficult decisions.

    My sincere condolences to his family. Rest in Peace Mike, you gave it your all.

  4. These tributes were collect from Mike’s Chevron peers by Rita Herrera. They were read at Mike’s Committal Service:

    Mike Jung was a man that would light up a room with his smile. Miked was always up for a challenge. Gentle giant. He had the uncanny ability to make “dad” jokes funny and had the best comebacks-witty and intelligent! Mike’s expertise was finance but also life. It was Mike who encouraged me to go to grad school…and it had to be -UH!

    Mike invested in people…he will never be forgotten…his was loved back by many, his legacy will live on and have a ripple effect.

    Mike was a blessing to many.

    I am going to keep smiling…thank you my friend! ”

    He brought with him a spirit of joy. He had the gift of encouragement. He was able to spot those who were having a tough time and lift them up. How wonderful a gift he shared with everyone. He is missed.

    A quote that makes me think of Mike is,” Don’t cry because its over; SMILE because it happened.”- Dr. Seuss
