It is with a very heavy heart that we share that Pat Dando passed away last night with her husband Bob and her family at her side. 

Pat served as the President & CEO  of the SJSV Chamber of Commerce from 2005 to 2011.  Pat was a very successful leader of the Chamber ‚Äì increasing the organization‚Äôs political engagement and effectiveness in local races including the 2006 election of Chuck Reed as Mayor and councilmembers Pete Constant, Rose Herrera and Sam Liccardo. 

In addition, Pat helped lead and win a lengthy legal battle against city campaign limits on independent political groups like the Chamber‚Äôs political action committee. 

Prior to becoming the Chamber‚Äôs 9th chief executive, Pat served a stint with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as a local government liaison and 10 years on the San Jose City Council beginning in 1995. 

A celebration of life will be held on August 20th at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club, with the Memorial Ceremony beginning at 5pm, followed by a reception.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations may be made to the Stroke Awareness Foundation or Cancer CAREpoint.

We still need to support the nonprofits in our region who are continuing to provide critical services to the people of our community day and night—ensuring our most vulnerable populations are being housed, fed and cared for. However, they could really use our help in a number of ways: donating extra supplies, offering your time as a volunteer or through any generous donations in order to sustain themselves.
