Remembering but Moving Forward, One Year Later
Long Beach Post co-founder Shaun Lumachi died one year ago today. One of his friends reflects on our lost leader.
Local Board Members Remember Shaun
Most people knew that Shaun Lumachi volunteered his time for many worthy causes, but he also served on many boards of local charitable and artistic organizations. I reached out to some of his fellow board members, and asked for memorable anecdotes. Not surprisingly, I received some.
Remembering Shaun as a True Individual
When we have little interaction with someone who has passed, it tends to be the abstractions -- husband, son, publisher, graduate, advocate, award-winner -- that fix the person in our imaginations.
OP-ED: Robert Garcia: Shaun Was Awesome
As you may have heard, Long Beach lost one of its finest yesterday. Shaun Lumachi, publisher of the Long Beach Post, and President of Chamber Advocacy, passed away in a car crash while representing Long Beach at a conference in Miami, Florida.
For Our Shaun
It’s been almost two weeks since we’ve posted a new article and we usually get something out, but like everyone else at the Long Beach Post and in the Long Beach community, we were shocked, angered, and ultimately saddened by Shaun Lumachi’s sudden death.
OP-ED: Randy Gordon on Shaun Laumachi's Chamber Legacy
Shaun Lumachi worked for the Chamber for over a decade, as our VP of Governmental Affairs for three years and the last seven years as a Public Policy Consultant. I knew when I hired this 23-year-old right out of Sacramento State that he was something special -- but never did I ever dream he would one day be the community leader than is today.

Driver Involved in Shaun Lumachi's Death Sentenced
Keith Weitzman, the truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel on December 3 of last year, incidentally hitting the car carrying former Long Beach Post publisher and innovator, Shaun Lumachi, attended court for his sentencing in the accident in Florida. Weitzman, who turned 26 on March 13 and lives in Tampa, was fined $500 and told to perform 50 hours of community service by County Judge Peary Fowler. These fines and service requirements are the maximum punishment that can be alloted for Weitzman's citation: failure to drive in a single lane involving a fatality.
