Mark Bennett Simon died on Sunday October 8, 2017 at 7:37 am in Portland Oregon. Mark died of complications from his liver transplant after many years of fighting liver disease. I knew Mark as a friend for many years. He asked me to put together this site for him several years ago and I did it in exchange for piano lessons. Our lessons were weekly and usually lasted for hours. Mark could talk. And Mark could play. He was a truly amazing jazz pianist. I loved all the music, knowledge and friendship that he brought into my life. I also had the privilege of watching Mark record his last album. If you have photos, videos or words you'd like to add to this site please feel free to contact me. David Friedman 503-757-5595
