In Loving Memory
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and colleague, Ron Bookman, on March 5, 2019. The entire Onco360 family mourns this loss. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Ron have lost a dear friend and an inspiring human being. Ron leaves behind his wife, Leisanne, and their 16-year-old son, Austin.
Ron served as Senior Vice President of Trade Relations for seven years; committed to improving the lives of patients battling cancer. Ron was a larger-than-life figure who brought his remarkable passion, experience, and energy to Onco360. Ron possessed a unique ability to embrace audiences with his infectious smile, laughter, and unique personal style.
“Ron joined Onco360 in February 2012 and had been a valued employee since that time; working hard to drive access to life-saving limited distribution medications for Onco360 and the patients we serve. I had the good fortune of spending time in the field with Ron and witnessing the passion he had for the mission of our company,” said Paul Jardina, President and CEO.
“Ron was the ultimate professional who developed a reputation of integrity and loyalty. Ron has made an indelible mark on many colleagues, friends, and family, for that we are grateful. His warm-hearted nature, infectious smile, and endless charm will inspire and stay with us always,” remarked Benito Fernandez, Vice President, Trade Operations & Account Management.
Ron was an avid golfer and devoted father. Ron enjoyed spending quality time with his son, Austin, experiencing the local aquarium, movies, and their swimming pool. Austin is an avid swimmer who is preparing for college. Austin filled Ron’s life with love, wonder, and complete joy.
To honor the remarkable life and legacy of Ron, the Onco360 family along with Ron’s wife, Leisanne, have started a college fund for Austin Giovani Bookman to help with his educational goals.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to be made to the Austin Bookman 529 Plan. A GoFundMe page has been set-up for this purpose. Donations can be accepted online at https://www.gofundme.com/honoring-ron-bookman.
No words can adequately express our sadness at Ron’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. On behalf of our organization, we extend our deepest sympathies to Ron’s family.
