Yuen-Sheng Chiang, a scientist and financial officer, died April 16, 2018, at age 82.

Born in China in 1936, Chiang immigrated to the island of Taiwan and enrolled at the National Taiwan University at age 16, graduating in 1956. He earned a master’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Louisville in 1960. In 1964, he earned a Ph.D. in chemistry from Princeton.

He spent 19 years as a senior scientist at such corporations as Xerox and RCA, where he received several patents for which he won awards.

While working at RCA, he studied at night, commuting three times a week for three years to earn an MBA with highest honors from Rutgers in 1979. He then spent the final 20-plus years of his business career with Jeanne Pierre Originals, an apparel company, where he was the chief financial officer.

Chiang is survived by his wife, Marie Fang; two sons, including Ed ’90; and two grandsons. He was known for his infectious sense of humor.
