You may have heard or seen the reports by now: Salsa King, local food advocate and kid's charity hero Jack Aronson has passed away. Like many food entrepreneurs in the Metro-Detroit area, I had the honor of Jack's mentor-ship, influence and frequent patronage in RE BBQ's growth and success. I am forever grateful for the opportunities I was was able to take advantage of thanks to Jack's tireless advocacy of local food startups and his larger than life smile and presence in the community will be missed. We are all fortunate to have had Jack as one of our home-town heroes.
