40 Under 40 Winner: Jahaziel Romero

On Thursday, April 25, the Long Beach Post hosted an event to honor young people from around the city who are doing great things to better their community and beyond. Out of hundreds of nominations from our readers, judges chose 40 winners who run the gamut from educators to artists to business owners to community activists, all of whom represent just a selection of those who are today contributing to the betterment of Long Beach.

Jahaziel and his wife.

Jahaziel has a business that many men would love to have: he prints t-shirts, the classic garment that will never leave one’s closet. But beyond that, his tireless dedication in donating his merchandise, working with community groups and extending partnerships with businesses have made him more than a guy who prints tees—it has made him an active leader in furthering and broadening the scope of small business in Long Beach. At the end of the day, it is not just himself for whom he cares about, but the businesses in Long Beach as a whole in order to create success.
