At the ceremony, Mark Keam (House Delegate, VA-D), stated “Sam Jung is a trustworthy person, who I’ve known since 2009. When I was trying to come into politics as a career, no one was sure of my ability as a public servant because at that time I wasn’t well known as a public figure in the Korean Community rather than in American Society, but he gave a big encouragement with support. That is why I have worked as a politician now. He gave me faith as a friend and I have never forgotten what he did for me. I am very sure of what he is going to do for Korean community as a businessman and as a leader of the sports community.”
