Family-owned and operated in San Diego, Jerome’s Furniture today officially announced to customers that the company was awarded with the San Diego National Bank Founders Award at the 2008 Family-Owned & Closely-Held Business Awards Ceremony, hosted by the San Diego Business Journal at the San Diego Marriott Del Mar. On November 5, nearly 400 guests attended the ceremony, which recognized the accomplishments of businesses in San Diego County that are family owned or closely held. Nine businesses were honored in three categories — small, medium and large, and four Special Diamond Sponsor Awards were given to select participants. Jerome’s currently employs 370 employees in the county, with seven of those employees being members of the Navarra family. “We are so honored to receive this award from the San Diego Business Journal,” said Jim Navarra, Marketing Manager, who accepted the award on behalf of Jerome’s. “Jerome’s was started by my grandparents, Jim and Esther Navarra, in 1954, and now, the third generation of the Navarra family is deeply involved in the business. We take great pride in being a family-run company, and having worked together for so many years, we truly understand how to run the business successfully as a family.” Charitable giving is at the core of Jerome’s business values. As such, the company works with a variety of charities throughout San Diego, including the YWCA’s Becky’s House, a nonprofit shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children, and Cortez Hill Family Center, which provides homeless children and their parents with short-term transitional housing. Additionally, the company also supports My Sister’s Closet Thrift Stores, whose sales proceeds are used to fund the YWCA’s programs and services; the San Diego Women’s Foundation, which educates and inspires women to engage in significant and sustainable philanthropy throughout the San Diego region; and Business Link at USD, which fosters relationships and collaboration between the university and the corporate community.
