Jaime Ortiz, BID President

A huge thank you to our outgoing president, Jaime Ortiz, from Bank of Marin. 

Jaime has served as BID President for the past three years, creating a cohesive, cooperative and effective organization. He did it while also being an active in the Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce, Hispanic Chamber, and several more organizations.

We salute him and his inspiring energy!

As well as being a great leader and Downtown San Rafael advocate, Jaime is our event guru, always willing to volunteer and help produce community events. He takes on a multitude of tasks, from finding sponsors and volunteers to hauling event materials in his own truck, assembling them, then working all day and taking them down when everything wraps. 

His smiling face can be seen serving drinks for many local organizations and on the road with his VW and biking crews. 

Luckily, Jaime has promised to stay active on the BID Board as past president and events chair. He will be a great mentor for our incoming president, Erika Bowker.

Along with our signature events, Jamie’s lasting legacy will be seen in the beautiful overhead Tivoli criss-cross lights and the “art style” bike racks coming soon to Fourth Street. 

Thank you, Jaime, for being the MVP of the BID!
