Attorney Jeong passed the first bar exam in 1963 after graduating from Seoul National University School of Law, served as a judge for 13 years, and opened a lawyer’s practice in 1978 to pay for the treatment of her blind daughter, Yoon-Min Jung (29 years old at the time of her death in 1995).
During the collapse of Sampoong Department Store on June 29, 1995, Attorney Jeong lost all three of them: Yoon Min, Yoo Jung (28 years old), and Yoon Kyung (25 years old). It has been nine months since Yoon Min returned to Korea after receiving a master’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 1988 and became a teacher at the Seoul School for the Blind.
Attorney Chung established a scholarship foundation after the disaster with 650 million won in compensation and 1.35 billion won plus personal property. After naming the ‘Samyun Scholarship Foundation’ after his three daughters, he donated the foundation to his eldest daughter’s alma mater and first workplace, the Seoul School for the Blind.
At the time, Lawyer Jeong’s wife, Lee Jeong-hee, explained, “It was for the couple to replace Yoon Min-yi’s unfulfilled dream of becoming a light to the blind.
