In Memoriam Jackie Luk

Our dear colleagueJackie Luk, passed away in early March of this year. She was one of the few Chinese Interpreters who worked in both Mandarin and Cantonese. Jackie worked for the courts for more than 30 years and was assigned to Alhambra when she retired several years ago.

Classy, yet humble and easy-going, Jackie was gifted with a great sense of humor. Her deep understanding of Chinese and American cultures translated into a colleague who related well to all of us. 

Jackie was a major player on the national interpreter scene, serving on teams that developed certification exams throughout the country. She was the first choice of many states to rate exams since she was so reliable and easy to work with.

Jackie was an avid tennis player and loved to hike and be outdoors. 

She is survived by her husband, Kim, as well as her children, Stephanie and Eric, and two grandchildren.


In memoriam Ventura Torres

Wednesday, February 3, 2021, was a very sad day for the Compton Court interpreters’ family and for all interpreters in the county of Los Angeles. We lost our beloved friend and colleague, Ventura Torres.

Ventura had been a staff interpreter in Compton since the beginning of his career back in the eighties, and everyone in this building knew, respected and loved him to no end. He was one of the most selfless, generous people I knew, if you needed help he was always there to give you the shirt off his back never expecting anything in return.

He was a good father and a loving husband, and my heart aches for the tremendous loss his family suffered today. 

At work, Ventura was the first one to arrive every morning, and the last one to leave at the end of the day. He was a hard worker, something he learned early on in life.

His childhood wasn’t easy, he told me some stories but only because I pried, Ventura never complained about the many hardships he endured, he just faced them like a man even when he was still a child.

As an interpreter, there was no one like him. If you saw him work his skill at the witness stand, a place many interpreters fear and avoid at all costs, he would be cool as a cucumber. Ventura knew his stuff; he was a natural.

Every time I had question about a difficult interpretation I knew who to ask, he never disappointed me, and I know there are dozens, if not hundreds of interpreters, who would say the same thing.

We lost a good friend today, a good man, and exemplary human being.

The void will be impossible to fill, as it should be when you lose someone like Ventura.

In Memoriam Daniel Felix

Interpreter Daniel Felix, loving husband and father of two children, dies in isolation at age 66

Born on January 28, 1954 in Brawley, California. Daniel’s life was cut short after he lost his battle to COVID-19 this past Sunday, January 17, 2021. 

Daniel married his High-School sweetheart, María Elena, and together they raised their daughter, Massiel, and son Daniel. He had a passion for life. He was always smiling, invariably ready to dance, laugh and live life to the fullest. He would never miss a concert on Friday nights at the Music Center, and California Plaza where he would dance the night away with his wife and friends. He was a family man. His wife and children were the main purpose of his life and he was successful in having a strong and joyful family.
