John Wanjala: First Ombuds at Portland State University

A memorial service to honor John Wanjala is set for this Sunday on the campus of Portland State University. Wanjala founded PSU's Ombuds Office in 1993 after previously serving as chief of Campus Public Safety. He retired in 2009 and returned to Kenya, his homeland, where he died of cancer in April.

  1. One of the people I looked forward to seeing at the annual California Caucus of University and College Ombuds in Asilomar was John. I think it was 2008 that I last some him. It was always a treat just conversing with him. A quiet - yet powerful - man. May friends and family find comfort in memories of him.
