Gloria and Kun Oh
‘I want to be her Diamond’ – For Kun Oh, the Amway™ business embodies everything his wife Gloria exemplified: energy, enthusiasm, loyalty, and sincerity.
“She saw the potential to positively impact a lot of people,” he says.
Sadly, Kun, and indeed the greater Amway community, lost an amazing friend when Gloria passed away in February 2013 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Kun, who suffered multiple fractures, spent several weeks in a hospital in North Carolina.
“I’ve had a lot of support from downlines and my sons,” he says. Jay Youl came in from New York; Jae Chang traveled from Korea. Countless IBOs stepped in to keep their home and business running seamlessly.
Still recovering, Kun’s days include time for “taking a walk, reading a book, and just relaxing,” which is a new experience for him. “Gloria was so dedicated to our Amway business!” he recalls with a laugh.
Her dedication to their business – “Gloria saw it as a mission” – is what allowed them to survive and then thrive after their two coffee franchises closed. Her outgoing demeanor was “the driving force behind our Amway business,” he observes.
Nevertheless, Kun has learned to become a more positive person in the process of building their business. “I enjoy giving downline IBOs a vision for success,” he states.
While he loves to travel, it’ll be different now, because “Gloria and I used to talk a lot during our travels,” he says. He’s sure to think of her when he boards a plane to visit granddaughter Seoeun (their first), born May 16 in Korea.
Undoubtedly, qualifying Diamond is in his plans, “because that was Gloria’s goal.” He pauses and then adds, “I want to be her Diamond.”
