It is with deep sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Joe Coulombe, founder of the Trader Joe's grocery store chain.
Joe Coulombe was the husband of Opera League co-founder Alice Coulombe. In 1967 he opened the first Trader Joe's in Pasadena, CA. Over 500 Trader Joe's are now open across the U.S.
Long-time steadfast supporters of the arts, including and especially LA Opera, Alice and Joe remained Lifetime Premier members of the Opera League.
