San Bernardino, CA (April 23, 2019) - The U.S. Post Office located at 390 West Fifth Street in downtown San Bernardino has been officially renamed the Jack H. Brown Post Office Building.


The bill, H.R. 2979, to rename the post office was first introduced by Congressman Pete Aguilar in June of 2017, with the support of 50 members of California’s congressional delegation, and was officially signed into law by President Donald J. Trump on December 6, 2018.


A dedication ceremony to celebrate the renaming took place at the newly renamed post office building on April 22, 2019.


“Jack was a devoted husband, father and grandfather to his family, and an advocate for the Inland Empire community for over three decades,” said Phillip J. Smith, Chairman of Stater Bros. Markets. “His efforts on behalf of San Bernardino County workers and families will be carried on by those who were fortunate to know him, and we hope that through this new dedication, his name will be with us and remembered for generations to come.”
