A Legacy of Kindness — Special Spaces has lost a special friend with the tragic and untimely passing of Stephen Chen. Through both his personal and professional support, as president of MLILY USA, Stephen demonstrated his genuine love of our mission and his commitment to those we serve. MLILY’s sponsorship has been and continues to be instrumental in our work to provide dream bedroom makeovers for children with cancer.
With his funny, energetic, and visionary approach to every aspect of his life — family, faith, work, or play — Stephen was always surprising us with something new and wonderful.
“Dream BIG” has always been a motto for our organization, but Stephen encouraged us to dream bigger. His vision became a reality, and his impact is immeasurable. We offer our deepest condolences to his wonderful family, and to his universe of beloved friends and colleagues. Stephen will ever and always hold a special space in our hearts.
