The owner of Cardenas market, which is headquartered in Ontario, passed away last week. My colleague Neil Nisperos is working on an update. Here is what we have.
Here is a statement, released today, from assemblymember Jose Medina, D-Riverside, on the passing of Jesus Cardenas:
“I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Jesus Cardenas, the founder and owner of Cardenas Markets. Mr. Cardenas came from modest beginnings and through his hard work, went on to achieve huge recognition in the community as a successful Latino business owner. His family will carry on his memory through their continued participation in the community. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family at this time. I will ask my colleagues in the Assembly to join me in adjourning in his memory.”
