Former Los Alamitos Council Dean Grose has notified us of the passing of Marv Jempsa, a longtime resident of Los Alamitos.
Marv was married to Alice Jempsa, who served on the Los Alamitos City Council and as Mayor. Alice was also active in civic organizations, such as the Rossmoor-Los Alamitos Republican Women Federated (now the West Orange County Republican Women Federated), and helped to organize the Los Alamitos Weekend of Art.
According to Mr. Grose, Marv had been in failing health but had returned home after a recent brief hospitalization. He was a veteran of World War II and active in local civic affairs, including the Los Alamitos Rotary Club.
