LACERA Remembers Yves Chery

Yves Chery

Elected by
General Members

With sadness in our hearts, we share the news that LACERA Board of Retirement member Yves Chery passed away this past April. Mr. Chery served the Los Angeles County community as a Deputy Probation Officer and dedicated his time to helping at-risk youths, advocating for working families as a labor leader, volunteering with the State Association of County Retirement Systems, and making sure LACERA paid our members their promised benefits. Mr. Chery was elected to the Board of Retirement in 2006. Since then, he served continuously every year and held various leadership positions, including two years as Board Chair and five years as the Board Secretary. We will remember Mr. Chery for being a passionate supporter of members’ retirement rights, a strong champion of LACERA’s Outreach programs, and for his charismatic positive energy. He is survived by his wife and two children.
