Thomas H. Jing
Thomas H. Jing died June 30, 2004, after a courageous battle with bladder cancer. He was 65.
Born March 6, 1939, in China, Jing received his doctorate of dental surgery degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., where he practiced general dentistry for seven years before returning to the University of Florida in Gainesville for his specialty training in periodontics.
A desire to share his skill and knowledge with future dentists led him to teach periodontics at the University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco and Southern Illinois part time. He taught two years full time at Loma Linda Dental School in periodontics before setting up a private periodontics office in Davis, where he practiced for 19 years.
He is survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Lillian Jing of Davis. He will be greatly missed by his wife, family, friends and patients, his family said.
Friends are invited to attend a funeral at 11 a.m. Friday at the Davis Funeral Chapel, 116 D St.
In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made in his name to the UC Davis Cancer Center, 4501 X St., Room 3003, Sacramento, CA 95817.
