During the beginning of 2021, BCPAS lost one of our dear colleagues, treasurer of the society, Fellow Lifetime BCPAS member, and friend, PA John Kazen. A graduate of the UTMB at Galveston's PA program at the young age of 19, John was dedicated to family practice medicine throughout San Antonio for over 43 years.

His successful PA journey gained him many recognition's such as Preceptor of the Year, PA of the year in 2014, and in 2017 BCPAS honored John for all his years of service by placing him into the BCPAS Hall of Fame. Kazen was a member of BCPAS since 2014. In his time with BCPAS he took on many different roles within our society, always striving to make it better. The BCPAS family will greatly miss PA Kazen. We were honored to have him on the board, as a Fellow Lifetime Member, and mostly as our colleague and friend and will honor his memory and his accomplishments through the John Kazen, PA-C Student Scholarship.
