Andrew Jia Tee Chang, age 14, of Gahanna, unexpectedly passed on Monday, January 12, 2015. Andrew was a freshman at Gahanna Lincoln, where he was a part of the band and swim team. He had a passion for scholarship and learning and was also a proud member of Gahanna YMCA Swim Team. Andrew was an innovative, compassionate young gentleman and will be deeply missed. He is survived by his loving parents, Peter Chang and Amenda Lee; and loving brothers, Chris and Jon Chang; extended family and friends.  In Andrew’s honor and memory, we have created the Andrew Chang Memorial Scholarship. We will award this scholarship annually to a graduating High School Senior in Central Ohio with a connection to aquatics. We are looking for applicants who are academically strong and very dedicated to school, swimming and family.
