In Memory of Warren J. Simon



Warren Simon, Executive Director for the BID Council, recently passed away. He was a  great friend, supporter and advocate of Southeastern San Diego. He was instrumental in revamping the Diamond Business Association a few years ago and ensuring our success. 

To honor Warren's memory, we encourage all to give a donation to the  George L. Stevens Senior Center, where  Warren  dedicated much of his volunteer time and energy serving the mission and needs of the organization. We suggest that donations be made with a notation of "In Memory of Warren J. Simon". To donate, please visit  George L. Stevens Senior Center and click on the "Donate" button on the left side of the home page. 

He will be missed.
