Rajesh Kumar Dhunna past president and chairman of Rajput Association of America and current Joint Secretary of FIA-SC breathed his last, at a young tender age of 40 years, on Sunday morning, February 03, 2013 in Jalandhar (India) while on visit there to see his relatives. According to his family, preliminary information they received points out to food poisoning, sudden low blood pressure, and dehydration due to vomiting as the possible reasons for his death. He was rushed to Hospital in Jalandhar soon after getting sick. There doctors struggled for 12 hours to save his life but luck was against Dhunna family. He passed away early morning today (Sunday afternoon in India).

Rajesh was born in Jalandhar, India on July 11, 1972 and immigrated to USA with his parents on April 04, 1993. He is survived by his wife Niru, two young sons Gurdit and Paras, his mother Sudesh, two younger brothers Rajinder Dhunna (past president/chairman FIA-SC) & Rajneesh and a younger sister Seema. He was a catalyst for the Dhunna family. He kept his family together after his father Ramesh Dhunna died also at a young age of 44 on December 22, 1993.  Rajesh was only 21 years of age at the time. Incidentally his father also died in India when he went back to visit his relatives.   Rajesh Dhunna and his three younger siblings worked hard to succeed. Rajesh played a key role in keeping the family united. Under his guidance they became successful entrepreneurs, bought their house and currently own two convenient stores and a Gas Station. Rajesh played a father figure to his siblings and got them all married and well settled.

Rajesh was a great social worker and actively involved in community service from his teen age days while in India. He continued to participate and serve in Indian community functions on arriving to USA. His heart warming and outgoing traits won him many friends and admirers. He was there and ready to serve when called upon. He never shied away from helping anyone in need. Rajesh will surely be missed by not only his family but all his friends and especially Rajput Association of America members. May God bless his soul and his family with peace and strength.
