Heroes Among Us

Twenty-two local heroes were honored at the 5th Annual Hero Awards, a ceremony and luncheon hosted by the North San Diego Business Chamber. It was a chance for the community to come together in recognition of the dedication and personal sacrifice demonstrated by these courageous first responders and public safety officers – including a tribute to San Diego Police Officer Jonathan “JD” DeGuzman, who lost his life during a pedestrian stop this past summer.

Other honorees included lifeguards, paramedics, special agents, and investigators who have all gone above and beyond the call of duty to serve this community. Learn more at
