Jim Feuerstein is co-editor of LNF Weekly; he also designs and manages the website.
Jim Feuerstein is a software developer and website designer.
He relocated from the New York City area to San Antonio in 1994, when he sold his original software and consulting business to a San Antonio company. He hadn’t intended to stay here, but when he moved to the Lavaca neighborhood in 2005, he fell in love with the area.
‘This is a real neighborhood,’ Jim says, ‘I know my neighbors. My friends live down the block, and we run into each other on the streets and in restaurants. At the same time, there’s an active business, entertainment, and civic life that makes things interesting.’
From the time he moved here, Jim has been active in the community, serving on the board of the Lavaca Neighborhood Association and working with his business partner, Jane Gennarelli, to organize a neighborhood happy hour, to put together the 'Lavaca & Friends' website, and now to co-edit the 'LNF Weekly'.
Jim’s first job out of college was in journalism, with a small county newspaper in Wisconsin, where he primarily covered sports, so the 'LNF Weekly' is a return to those roots.
He and Jane Gennarelli have been business partners for almost two decades, and now, here in Lavaca, they’re also neighbors, living less than a block apart.
