Born in I-Lan, Taiwan in 1961 to Suhyueh Forng Wu and the late Tzongtang Wu, Gin-Weigh was raised in Taipei where he completed his high school education and went on to graduate from National Tsing Hua University with his Bachelor’s degree. Following his two-year military service, he worked as a Research Assistant at the university. During this time, he met his beloved Chin Yun, whom he married in Taiwan. Gin-Weigh later moved to Missouri to pursue his Master’s degree in Nuclear Engineering and Doctor of Philosophy in Nuclear Engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He and Chin Yun then started a family and moved to Seattle, WA before settling in Holmdel, NJ in 1998 with their two daughters.
Throughout his career, Gin-Weigh worked as a software engineer for AT&T and as a medical physicist for several medical centers, including Monmouth Medical Center, Hershey Medical Center, and Morristown Medical Center.
Gin-Weigh was a man of many talents and interests.
