Another Death By Foreclosure: Frank Swenson of Oakland, CA

ANOTHER DEATH BY FORECLOSURE

In Memory
of
Frank Leland Swenson
November 14, 1945 - July 7, 2014
Resident of Oakland, California

Another good man -- father, grandfather, friend, neighbor and contractor -- has given his life in his fight to save his homes from foreclosure by JPMorgan Chase Bank, NA.  On the evening of July 7, 2014 Frank's heart gave out.  The endless years of the foreclosure war with Chase Bank and their siege mentality proved be too much for Frank Leland Swenson of Oakland, California.


Over a five year span Chase foreclosed and auctioned off one home through various nefarious questionable schemes, lies, and tactics. Frank had managed to work out a short sale on a second home where an adult child had lived. Frank was in litigation on a third home where he lived and was found dead in his bathroom.

Days before Frank's heart failed him, we visited at Cole Coffee where we discussed various foreclosure cases where the homeowners were prevailing against Chase and their greed machine.  Though Frank appeared pale, thin and frail, his determination and will remained strong.  We spoke about Saint Michael the Archangel and Psalms 118.  We tried to imagine a future time free of our struggles, a time of peace and joy.

 
Ironically seven weeks after Frank's death, Chase is discussing a loan modification with his son as Administrator of his father's estate.The foreclosure war has been handed down to a younger generation.

Jamie Dimon's (CEO of JPMC) ruthless foreclosure practices and policies brought about the early death of Frank Swenson who was a devoted father, a practicing Catholic, friend, and foreclosure fighter.  Dimon's dirty hands are clearly visible in this tragedy and thousands of others past, present and future.

Let us remember Frank with love and gratitude.

 Rest in Peace Dear Friend, Rest in Peace.
Blessed be.
A reading from the Book of Wisdom 3:1-6, 9
The souls of the just are in the hand of God
     and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
     and their passing away was thought an affliction
     and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
     But they are in peace.
For if in the eyes of men, indeed they be punished,
     yet is their hope full of immortality;
Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
     because God tried them,
     and found them worthy of himself.
As gold in the furnace, he proved them,
     and as sacrificial offerings he took them to himself.
Those who trust in him shall understand truth,
     and the faithful shall abide with him in love:
Because grace and mercy are with his holy ones,
     and his care is with his elect.
The word of the Lord.

God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for Frank Leland Swenson's family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.


Amen.
