Solomon and Jenn Carter Chau decided that they’re going to take their relationship to a higher level. The young and beautiful couple decided that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives in each other’s arms, which was a pretty exciting time for both of them. They were thrilled while planning their wedding on December 2014.
But Chau, a professional chef, discovered he had liver cancer, an event that’s truly heartbreaking.
He was told that he would soon recover after having his first surgery. However, doctors discovered that the cancer had spread months later, right after his surgery.
This amazing couple didn’t let grief and sadness overcome them. They decided to have the wedding on an earlier date than planned.
They didn’t want to be hindered from experiencing their marvelous wedding. They shared it with their friends and families, and especially with each other.
By the joint efforts of their loved ones, $52,000 was raised through a GoFundMe account. This was the result of their eagerness to see the couple have a magnificent wedding.
The grand and marvelous day was beyond perfect.
Solomon and Jenn tied the knot on April 11.
Unfortunately, Chau passed away on August 17, which is ironically the original date they planned for their wedding to take place. They were married for 128 days before Chau tragically perished.
The obituary that he has online reads as follows:
After an eight-month fight against cancer, Solomon passed away peacefully on August 17, 2015, with his wife, Jennifer, by his side. He is lovingly remembered by Jenn; his parents, Kim and Son; his mother-in-law, Jane; his siblings, Mongkol (Sadie), Thida (AP), Thi Hannah, and Mike (Alana); his two nieces Arielle and Claire; and his many friends. Sol will be remembered as the kind, funny, outgoing, athletic person that he was, and for all of the joy he brought to the lives he touched. Sol was a talented chef, an avid MMA fan, and a light in whatever room he entered. Even in the hardest times, Sol’s unwavering optimism has been an inspiration to everyone around him. Special thanks to Sol’s loving family and friends for their unconditional support, the wonderful nurses from Spectrum, and his compassionate medical team, Dr. Whelan and Dr. Jang.
Despite having such a tragic ending, their magnificent love story will shine and glisten. The video below is their wedding. Don’t forget to prepare a couple of tissues.
Regardless if their marriage was short-lived, their love will certainly live on and shine. May you slumber peacefully, Solomon.
