Steven Jimenez Died Over The New Year Holiday

Some of you might remember that I became a member of the Oakland Rainbow Chamber of Commerce a few months ago, well over the weekend I was contacted by Peggy Moore and told that the Co-founder of the chamber and Oakland Attorney Steven Jimenez died unexpectedly in his sleep this past Saturday.

This is a total surprise to me because Steven was a vibrant, energetic person who appeared to be doing least as far as I knew.

I didn't blog anything because it took me some time to process his death. He was so committed to making sure the our new nightclub opened and that the chamber became a viable resource for LGBT people in Oakland interested in starting their own businesses......Anyway Steven, you will be happy to know that we have the keys to our new nighclub space and we will miss your encouragement and will not be forgotten.
