James Youngblom Memorial Fund for Biology Research Lab Renovation

In Memory of Professor Jim Youngblom-an inquisitive research scientist,       taken from us far too soon,                  whose legacy remains.

An Opportunity to Honor Professor James Youngblom

Stanislaus State is deeply saddened by the recent loss of Professor Jim Youngblom, chair of the Department of Biological Sciences and a Stan State faculty member for 31 years. His life ended during a backpacking trip in Yosemite National Park. He was 64 years old.

Jim was a hardworking and dedicated member of the faculty who cared deeply about students and their success. As chair of Biological Sciences, he was a dedicated advocate for his department, colleagues and their students. He was an inquisitive scientist whose research expertise focused on genetics and DNA technology. He loved his job and was eager to share his passion and enthusiasm for science and discovery with young scholars.

This page exists simply to allow you an opportunity to honor Jim by supporting the work that was so important to him. A memorial gift will be a lasting tribute to Professor Youngblom and will be meaningful to his family, colleagues, and friends. Jim's family, including his wife, Janey, and their daughter, Emily, have established the James Youngblom Memorial Fund for the purpose of memorializing Professor Youngblom's passion for learning. Remembrances made will be used to fund renovation of the Biology Research Lab and will compliment a gift from the Youngblom family in recognition of Jim's love for research.
