I knew John when I was the Director of the Culinaryy Program at LA Harbor College. SIPA has collaborated with the Culinary Program with seminars to help our graduating students open their businesses and the whole gamut of financing an enterprise. John was my partner in these endeavours. I will miss my dear friend and all the former graduates from LA Harbor College that has taken those seminars John has presented or facilitated. Thank you John for all you’ve done for our community.
