Jeffrey Solomon was a larger than life Venetian. A gentle giant, standing damn near 6.5′ with his shoes on, Jeffrey had an energy and excitement to match We at Venice Paparazzi met Jeffrey in 2006 or 07 at a Venice Chamber of Commerce mixer at Danny’s Deli (now Winston House). In 2008 we rolled out the red carpet and took photos at the opening party of his Venice Beach Walking Tours. Jeffrey could be seen daily walking down the boardwalk, giving guided tours to groups, filling them in on all the details about Venice that only a local like Jeffrey would know. Jeffrey was born in Westchester and lived in Venice for over 45 years. Sadly, he had to leave the beach to live in a memory care facility a little over a year ago. The entire community is coming together to have a bench on the boardwalk built in Jeffrey’s honor.
Here is a message from his wife Fran Solomon!
