John Mitsuru Ebisu was born in Wailuku, Hawaii. He came to Alaska in 1965 and fell in love with the state, becoming a very adept fisherman, photographer and trap shooter. A Civil Engineer who enjoyed helping build communities, John worked on highways, dams, bridges, buildings, and other structures all over Alaska and the world. When John became ill with cancer, he came to Providence to receive treatment and was met with compassion and kindness from his care team.

John died May 12, 2013 in his home community in Maui, surrounded by loved ones, but his tremendous legacy of helping others lives on through the John Mitsuru Ebisu Providence Alaska Medical Center Endowment supporting the mission of providing compassionate service to all, especially the poor and vulnerable.
