Passing of Susan Hammer, former San Jose Mayor

It is with profound sadness that Eden shares the news of the passing of Susan Hammer, former Mayor of San Jose. Mayor Hammer was a true champion of affordable housing. She was instrumental in Eden’s development of Ohlone Chynoweth Commons and Eden Palms, which provide 340 homes for low-income families in San Jose. Hammer was not only an incredible mayor with a strong commitment to undeserved populations; she was a valued member of California’s Board of Education and was instrumental in the construction of the Martin Luther King Library in downtown San Jose. She will be missed by all who knew her.
