Jingsong Mo

April 1, 1970 - June 9, 2020

In loving memory of Jingsong Mo, who passed away on June 9th, 2020, surrounded by his loving family, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was the beloved husband of Ping and cherished father of Ethan and Noah. Mo will be sadly missed by all who knew him. 

Jingsong was born on April 1st, 1970 to parents Luqiang Mo and Dong Xiuqing in Shanghai and grew up in Canton, China. He graduated from Guangya Middle High and High School in Canton, China and received his BS in Automotive Engineering at South China Technology University. He then came to U.S. and earned his master’s degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno where he met his wife Ping Xu. He had worked at Toyota North America, Ann Arbor, Michigan, as an Engineer Manager since 2003, until a year after he was diagnosed with cancer. 

Jingsong is remembered as an intelligent, sensible, and rational man with intuitive artistic taste in writing and photography. He enjoyed doing research on cars and financial investments during his free time. His family often had good times with him on the fancy vacations he carefully planned. Friends also remembered him as a smart and serious cards player. His story of fighting with the king of cancer has inspired many, especially the story that was published in the news about him as he searched for hope when most of the cancer trials ended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jinsong is survived by his wife Ping Xu, his two sons Ethan and Noah, his parents Luqiuang Mo and Xiuqing Dong, and his sister Congrong Mo.

Visitation for Mr. Mo will be held on Saturday, June 13th, from 9:00 a.m. until the time of his Funeral Service at 11:00 a.m. at McCabe Funeral Home, 851 North Canton Center Rd., Canton. A private burial service will follow in Arborcrest Memorial Park, Ann Arbor.

Mo's family kindly invites extended family members and friends to attend his funeral service and to feel comfortable wearing a mask and supporting them during this difficult time.

 

                                                Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
                                                         Mighty and dreadful, for thou are not so;
                                                 For those whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow
                                                    Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
                                                    From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
                                               Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
                                                        And soonest our best men with thee do go,
                                                           Rest of their bones, and soul's delivery.
                                            Thou'art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
                                                     And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
                                                   And poppy'or charms can make us sleep as well
                                                  And better than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then?
                                                         One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
                                                  And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
