Austin Chang and Jeslyn Chang Wiki – Austin Chang and Jeslyn Chang Biography
The small suburban community northwest of Inverness came together on Thursday, September 15, to pray for a pair of brothers who were intentionally poisoned by their father on Sunday, September 11. Woon Chang, 41, poisoned Austin Chang, 10, and his sister Jeslyn, 6, by deliberately leaving a generator running inside the house, and he and the two children were overcome by carbon monoxide.
CBS News said Woo Chang’s estranged wife went to the home in Inverness on Sunday around 4:30 p.m. m. after he failed to return the boy and girl at the scheduled time after the visit. She found them all unconscious at the home in the 2200 block of Palatine Road. He and his son, Austin Chang, 10, were pronounced dead at the scene. The couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Jeslyn, was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. Fortunately, Jeslyn is now opening her eyes and they will remove her breathing tube, as she is now able to breathe on her own.

MEAWW previously reported this incident. Austin was identified as a student by Palatine Township Elementary District 15. A released statement read: “The district is simply heartbroken, and in shock and mourning the tragic loss of one of our students.” He continued, “Our efforts at this time are focused on offering support to the staff and students at Frank C Whiteley, where the student attended school. Needless to say, this is a devastating loss for all of us here in District 15, especially as we look to the rest of the school year where classmates and staff will feel the child’s absence.
Neighbors found the incident hard to believe and said the “family seemed friendly”. “I was very surprised to hear this,” said neighbor Renata Dyrda. Woo Chang had no criminal record. A group known as Amigos has organized a GoFundMe page to support the family. His goal is to raise money for the family’s burial and medical expenses and has reached more than $49,000. The update on the GoFundMe page read:
“Thank you so much for all your love, generosity and support to the Chang family. Jeslyn is doing great! She had an echo that looked fine. She is opening her eyes and tracking. Listening for some commands. She even recognizes faces and looks fondly at her mom. She seemed like she was trying to talk to Chelsie a few times. Today they’re taking her breathing tube off because she’s breathing on her own. Keep praying, they’re working.”
