SOLANA BEACH, Calif. (KGTV) - A Solana Beach community is mourning the loss of a young real estate agent who was killed over the weekend in a crash.
Jordan Beal of Beal Real Estate in Solana Beach is struggling to cope with the sudden death of Nicole Shamoun, his dear friend and employee. “Honestly, she was like a sibling to me. We spent more time in this office than most people in my life and we probably talked on the phone at least once or twice a day,” he tells 10News.
Beal adds, “She had the biggest heart that you could ever imagine. If someone needed something, Nicole was there. Literally. Even if it wasn't convenient or it was hard for her, she went out of her way to help people, constantly.”
It was early Sunday morning when hikers found a crashed car in a canyon below the 52 freeway, near Santee. 35-year-old Shamoun and the driver, 31-year-old Sarah Constantine of Acton, where found inside, dead.
California Highway Patrol says the crash is under investigation.
“She was just a wonderful ball of light,” say colleague Greg Moser. He says Shamoun leaves behind a three-year-old boy named Camden who was her world. “She had her son about a year before I had mine so she was not just an inspiration to me as a coworker but also an inspiration as parent,” he describes.
“She really loved being a mother. It’s not easy for a young woman these days to balance being a mother and working full time and she excelled at both of those,” adds Beal.
Friends are trying to raise money to help Shamoun’s family.

A memorial service is being planned for next Saturday at 4 p.m. in Oceanside. Contact Beal Real Estate for details: (858) 314-8393 / firstname.lastname@example.org
