Thompson, a staunch higher education advocate and a longtime CSN supporter, passed away unexpectedly in May of this year.

“Assemblyman Thompson was a tireless champion for our students,” said CSN President Federico Zaragoza. “His legacy will live on through their success and in the community he served so selflessly. Countless community leaders have expressed their support for naming the student union in his honor, and we feel privileged to be able to make that happen.”
