Remembering John Leonard

Press Release
For Immediate Release
October 9, 2023

We are heartbroken to share that our friend and colleague, John Leonard, unexpectedly passed away on September 28. 

John was a talented corporate attorney at Fairfield and Woods for 23 years. He was passionate about working with start-ups in the technology and biosciences spaces and served as the Board Chair of Innosphere, an incubator helping Colorado-based companies scale-up. John attended the University of Nebraska for both undergraduate and law school and we will deeply miss seeing him in our hallways in his signature red Huskers hat.

John was married to his childhood sweetheart, Gaye; was an extremely proud father and grandfather; and we will remember him most as our witty and beloved friend and coworker.
