Jason Lam


A Chinese Hero from New York:
In Memory of a Good Friend of
American Huayu China

 Chairman Lin Jianxin (Jason Lam)

He was a hero who dedicated himself
wholeheartedly to the Chinese and overseas
Chinese communities in America.
Today,we bid him farewell!


Dr Jeannie Yi, CEO of DYF Entertainment
& Co-Executive Producer ofThe Family Film Awards

In times of need, society looks for heroes. Among us lived such a hero, Jason Lam. From humble beginnings to affluent heights, but his wealth wasn't the sole testament to his legacy. It was his magnanimous heart after prospering, especially during the three years of economic downturn following the pandemic in the U.S., that united the Chinese communities across 48 states (There are 48 states and two territories in the U.S.- Puerto Rico and Saipan), kindling hope and instilling vigor, leading us all toward a brighter future.

 Jason Lam, the founder of the United Chinese Association in the USA, has unexpectedly left us. Who could believe this to be true? Could such news be just whispers of falsehood? How could someone so vibrant and full of life depart so suddenly? At 51, he exuded life and positivity. Perhaps, his tireless efforts for the Chinese communities across all 50 states took a toll on him, and now, he deserves his peaceful rest.


My acquaintance with Mr. Lam dates back merely two or three years, during the height of the pandemic when face masks became our shields, and we took risks to hold a brief gathering. We met in a posh restaurant in Los Angeles with several mayors, eminent entrepreneurs, and community leaders to discuss amplifying the Chinese voice in U.S. politics. That evening, I connected with Mr. Lam on WeChat, and since then, I've been regularly updated on his ventures, including the establishment of a museum on the East Coast and Chinese business associations in 48 states. I often marveled at his boundless energy. How could one man shoulder so much hope and pressure?

A native of Fujian and particularly renowned in Jiangmen, Mr. Lam was already a celebrated entrepreneur in China. The TV series "Kuang Biao" even featured his hotel property in Jiangmen. After migrating to the U.S. in 2000, he dived into commercial real estate investments with a keen insight and swift actions, founding the Jie Lin Group. Under his leadership, the group burgeoned, extending its reach from New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago to Philadelphia. Jason Lam's relentless endeavors carved a new legend in U.S. commercial real estate investments, establishing him as a beacon for the Chinese diaspora. Both Mr. Lam and the Jie Lin Group, praised for their robust achievements and their commitment to giving back, have received
 widespread acclaim


Despite the demands of his enterprise in recent years, Mr. Lam always found a way to engage in community activities across the U.S., generously donating his time and resources. During the establishment ceremony of the Wall Street Fortune Group and School of Economic Management on June 16, 2023, he spoke of the entrepreneur's duty to society, to business, and to family. He believed in philanthropy and serving the masses. A successful and powerful enterprise, he remarked, must actively give back, taking from the people
 to serve the people."


Since the beginning of this spring, discussions have flourished between the American Huayu China Company, the Hollywood Family Movie Awards, and Mr. Lin's enterprises, seeking ways to mutually strengthen and form a long-term strategic collaboration. First, on June 16th, 2023, at New York's Virgin Hotel, a cooperation plan was signed between American Huayu China and Mr. Lin's Wall Street Wealth Group. This led to the establishment of a media and film fund and the creation of a 10-episode TV seriesreflecting the second generation of Chinese in America, “Main Street .”

 On July 1st, Mr. Lin opened a branch of the Wall Street Wealth Group in Los Angeles, drawing over 200 Chinese American entrepreneurs and community leaders in California to offer congratulations

We had a delightful conversation with Mr. Lin. He shared and praised the extraordinary business experiences and investment insights of Chinese businesswoman Ms. Ma Xiaoqiu. He was very optimistic about her substantial investment in rebuilding the Hollywood Family Movie Awards. Mr. Lin spoke eloquently with many guests, expressing the reason for his collaboration with our Family Movie Awards: the overseas Chinese must tell their own stories.


It came to my notice that exceptional entrepreneurs pay meticulous attention to details. Whether it's organizing meetings, planning ribbon-cutting ceremonies, or arranging for me to speak on stage, he ensures perfection in every aspect of the process. I remember that many dignitaries, including government officials and Chinese community leaders, all acknowledged that Mr. Lin Jianxin truly embodied the concept of wholehearted community service, genuinely reaching every corner of the nation.


Our Family Movie Awards aims to assist Chinese businesses, particularly during the unprecedented decline in Flushing's Chinese enterprises during the three-year pandemic. Yet the resilience and subsequent rebound of the Chinese community, especially in Flushing, New York, have contributed significantly to America's prosperity. Jason has led many private entrepreneurs in New York in founding the United Association of Chinese Americans and Overseas Chinese, offering aid and warmth, and even helping some small businesses in learning about finance and insurance, laying a foundation for worry-free future living and working in America.


On August 3rd, 2023, during the audition for the TV series “Main Street 缅街” at the Virgin Hotel in New York, Mr. Lin Jianxin was expected to be present to cheer everyone on. But he did not appear that day, and people could not reach him by phone. He did not show up, lively and spirited, as he had in the past...


The American Huayu China Film Group remembers Mr. Lin Jianxin, Chairman of the United Association of Chinese Americans and Overseas Chinese.

 We grieve the loss of a friend, mentor, and potential partner.

Today, we bid him farewell, saluting a hero on his journey to eternity.



According to the obituary issued by the American Federation of Chinese and Overseas Chinese, Chairman

 Lin Jianxin’s memorial service will be held on August 11, 2023,
 from 2:00 to 6:00 pm
at Quanfu Funeral Home, at 134-35Northern Blvd, Flushing, NY11354.

The funeral service (mass) will be held on August 12, 2023 at 9 am.



My sincere and heartfelt condolences to Jason Lam’s family and his many colleagues and friends during these most difficult of days. My family and I wish to recognize that Jason was a great and honorable man who was dedicated to supporting his community. May GOD bless Jason , and may he rest in peace. I will pray for my lost dear friend.

Dr. Olympia Gellini
Founder & Chairman of the Olympia Art Awards


在这非常时期,我对林建新(Jason Lam)的家人、同仁及友人致以最深沉的哀悼和诚挚的慰问。我与家人都深知建新是一个伟大而让人尊而重之的好朋友,毕生致力于支持与守护他的社区。愿上帝保佑建新。 愿他安息。 我会为我失去的亲爱的朋友祈祷。
奥林匹亚·吉里尼博士 (Dr. Olympia Gellini)


Jason Lam, was a true gentleman, dedicated to service to his community. He made people welcome and was quick to shake a hand or greet people with a smile. He welcomed and embraced the opportunities to serve the Chinese Community, wishing to preserve Chinese Culture , while also celebrating the Chinese success in the US. His vision of a proud Chinese Community engaging and thriving in the USA, is one that we all work and pray for. The world is a better place , thanks to Jason.
We can best honor his life by continuing his mission.
Rest now my friend.

保罗·斯拉德库斯牧师,也是纽约著名传播社区好消息的广播电台创始人和董事长,曾在CBS电视剧制作中心工作37 年, 也是首位在PBS 报道中国城市沈阳故事的媒体人-Good News cooperation 。 对林先生生命的突然中止保罗心生悲痛。 他说: “ 林建新先生过去是,将来也永远是世界的领导者。当你见到林建新先生的时候,你会微笑,从他身上感受到温暖和爱,他是一个真正积极向上的人,他的许多专业成就,帮助了很多人,激励了他遇到的每一个人,永远不会被所有人忘记!


I met Mr. Jian-xin Chen many months ago when he, on his van, crisscrossed U.S. in a national trip to link together local Chinese American organizations and arrived at Nashville, TN. Having been on the “Sight” movie trip recently across the country myself, I have realized truly how much work that was and what a dedication and commitment that he had shown to helping organizing Chinese Americans across America. I have since met Mr. Chen several times and learned about the Chinese American museum that he has built in Philadelphia, and how generous that he had been in supporting Chinese American causes over the years. Mr. Chen’s passing is a huge loss for us as Chinese Americans. He has set an outstanding example for all of us, to see beyond ourselves and to help the great Chinese American community and America itself. Mr. Jian-xin Chen will forever be remembered for his leadership and contribution that he had made to Chinese Americans and God bless him and his family in this extraordinarily difficult time.
