On Saturday, June 8, 2019, Sean Stefano Simone, entered glory and is now safe and free in the arms of Jesus and in the very presence of God Almighty. He lived a life full of passion for all of his 30 years, even as a child. Sean is survived by his loving parents, Martin J. Simone, Jr. and Laura Kiley Simone; sister, Amanda Marie Simone; brother, Martin J. Simone, III "Trey"; maternal grandparents, William Roycroft and Norma Lucero Roycroft; paternal grandmother, Billie P. Busch; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Robert Blaise Kiley and paternal grandparents, Martin J. Simone, Sr. and Jeanne Faucheux Simone. As a student at LSU, in 2009, Sean founded SeNSE, which was a forum for entrepreneurs who could pitch ideas for new business start-ups, which was a particular passion of Sean. Sean was also a founder of Yellow Jacket, a smart phone stun-gun case. In 8th grade, Sean led the family to Disney World where he and two classmates were among 10 semi-finalists for the Christopher Columbus Award (initiated by President George W. Bush to encourage youthful discovery of concepts and ideas for new products). Their Walk 'n Rest placed 2nd in the United States. Sean had also obtained his real estate license in 2017. He was always seeking a new adventure! Even greater than his accomplishments is the legacy he leaves. We have heard story upon story of how Sean was a positive influence on his many, many friends. Sean was a member of Church of the King in Mandeville, LA. His faith in God was primary, but he also held an unwavering belief in all those he knew, always providing support of their worthy pursuits and was a continual source of encouragement. His friends were his source of life on this earth. Sean's family would like to thank the staff and volunteers at Louisiana Adult and Teen Challenge in Lafayette, LA and Mount Grace in Dodson, LA, who played a major role in Sean's battle with addiction over this last year. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the funeral service at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd. in New Orleans, on Friday, June 14, 2019 at 1:00PM. A visitation will be held at the funeral home beginning at 10:00AM. Interment will follow at Metairie Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Sean's memory to Louisiana Adult and Teen Challenge, www.louisianateenchallenge.com.

Sean and I sat at CC’s coffee soon after we met. It was there we both founded Sense. He was the spark and it began. He was so passionate about it and his energy and focus were inspiring. Though I moved on, our bond remained. He is now a light again. What a Blessing. Rest In Peace, my friend.
