We are saddened to announce the death of Michel Chaghouri, a man the world could be proud of. Michel was a very accomplished individual who devoted his short life to helping others. As a licensed attorney, Michel specialized in international transactional work, yet he dedicated much of his time to countless community, national and international organizations, where he graciously accepted any task. His love for his community was unparalleled. Michel was a man of faith who served the less fortunate and the type of man that was able to make a friend in anyone he met. Those that knew Michel looked up to him, and knew he was not a man to look down upon others. He was a generous soul who never met a person in need that he did not guide, counsel or simply make laugh with his gracious humor and powerful smile.

Michele was a founding member of the IDC Los Angeles Chapter and a tireless servant and fountain of initiative, bringing the chapter through its early stages of growth. He also served on many occasions in an unofficial advisory role to the national office on various initiatives. He will be missed by IDC members across the country. His memory will always be with us, and his legacy will continue through us.

Michel is survived by his parents, Gisele and Jimmy, and brother Marc.
