David C. Olson
We are deeply saddened to report that our leader and friend, Minnesota Chamber President David C. Olson, passed away last week, July 16.
As you may know, David was diagnosed in March 2013 with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He tackled this challenge as he did every other: directly, with tenacity and humor. He endured 13 rounds of chemo followed by a stem cell transplant. He received the “all clear” on June 18th. Unfortunately, his “all clear” was not long lasting. His cancer came back with a vengeance. He fought a hard fight. At the end, he was surrounded by his family as well as the thoughts and prayers of an extended family far and wide.
As David always said, “Thank you for your confidence in the Minnesota Chamber. We will work hard every day to earn your continued support.”
