Brian Christopher Grauman was born 30 April 1992 in Mountain View, California and died 18 November 2016 in San Jose, California. He leaves behind loving parents and an adoring sister. Brian "Chris" Grauman was an extremely intelligent and articulate man. He graduated from Prospect High School in Saratoga having enjoyed many activities including basketball, tennis, swimming, track and ROTC. He then achieved a Bachelor of Arts from UC Merced in three years while also serving as the Managing Editor of the campus newspaper, Chief Justice of the student body judicial branch, and was active with the pre-law society and the Alpha Kappa Psi fraternity. He was then selected as the Commencement Speaker for the UCM graduating class of 2013.

Brian then attended UC Hastings School of Law where he earned a Juris Doctorate in May 2016 and began preparations for the California Bar Exam. Brian loved studying and debating law, and was well on-track to fulfill his dream of being in the courtroom as a trial lawyer and eventually as a judge.

Brian excelled at life. He achieved everything he set his mind to do. Behind his playful challenges and mischievous grin, he was a very compassionate man. He had quickly absorbed a lifetime of knowledge in only 24 years and became literate in all that he did.

Brian was intense, impatient, and was very anxious to begin his professional life as a self-sufficient trial attorney. To him that represented financial independence and complete control of his own destiny. Unfortunately that dream ended after one major setback on 18 November. Brian made friends easily and there are hundreds of them who, like his family, must now face life without him.
