Board Member Steve Miller sadly passes unexpectedly

March 26, 2023

It is with great sadness that we learned of San Juan Unified Board of Education member Steve Miller’s passing this weekend.  

“Steve joined the board and quickly showed how much he cared about the San Juan Unified community,” said Board of Education President Zima Creason. “He used his voice to support debate and helped us reach critical decisions during his time on the board. His family is in our hearts and he will be deeply missed. ” 

Miller was elected to the board last November, becoming the first to represent trustee area seven covering most of Citrus Heights. During his first year, he was chosen by his board peers to serve as an officer of the board in the clerk role.  Prior to serving on the Board of Education, he served multiple terms as a city councilman in Citrus Heights, as a member of the board and board chair for the Sacramento Regional Transit District, and held a professional career in the construction industry. 

The San Juan Unified community extends its deepest sympathies to Miller’s family. He is survived by his wife and two children, one of whom is a teacher in the district.
