The recent weeks have been tough for the real estate investing community and our hearts are saddened.
On July 1st, long-time friend of the NSDREI, Aaron Norris, passed away from Stage 4 Intimal Sarcoma, a very rare form of cancer. He certainly was a bright light and a beacon of positivity for our industry and will most definitely be missed by all. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Aaron on August 13th from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM at The Grove Community Church in Riverside. Details can be found at www.aaronnorriscelebration.com
Further, master problem-solver and real estate investor, “Coach” Jack Fullerton, also recently passed away. Jack was an inspiration for many, and always seemed to have the right advice. A Rhony Award winner in 2014, he’s recognized for being a mentor to many in the Southern California Real Estate Community.
And if that wasn’t enough, another real estate investing legend is no longer with us, Mic Blackwell. He was a long-time friend and mentor to Mike Cantu and has run an investor lunch in the Pomona area for years, graciously giving of his time and talent shaping the next generation of real estate investors.
One thing I think we know for certain is that all three of these individuals would want us all to live, learn, and help others change their lives through real estate investing, just as they did. We at the NSDREI aim to do just that!
