The La Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club lost a long-standing and very active Rotarian, David Ballesteros.  David was a dedicated father, husband, friend, professor and Rotarian who dedicated his life to helping people around the world.
As a dean at SDSU, he assisted countless students in becoming future leaders within the San Diego and Imperial County communities. As a Rotarian for over 37 years, David held numerous leadership positions within the Calexico Rotary Club and the La Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club, where he led numerous district and global grant partnerships that delivered aid to the less fortunate in countries such as Ecuador, Mexico and Honduras.
David had long envisioned a future where technology would make it possible to create a truly global Rotary club where members from around the world could meet virtually and work together to effect positive change on a global scale. This vision came to fruition in 2016 when he helped found the Rotary E-club of San Diego Global. 5 years later, the Rotary E-club of San Diego Global continues to thrive with members in 6 countries and 3 Global Grants successfully completed. 
David touched the lives of many of us and he will be dearly missed. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, August 22nd at 11:30 AM at Funeraria del Angel at 753 Broadway, Chula Vista.
