Passing of a Great Guy - MLO Mister Leather Ottawa - Jon Nizzi

It is with a very heavy heart that we share the tragic news of the passing of our friend, titleholder and brother in leather, Mr.Leather Ottawa 2014 Jon Nizzi.

Jon was one of the most caring people you'd ever meet. He was so eager to help others and give back to the community that welcomed him when he came to the city. Many people can easily remember his enthusiasm and kindness towards his brothers and sisters in leather. He was so much more than a titleholder. He represented what was great about our community and helped bring a lot of us together.

We all have our favourite memories of Jon's life and the person he always will be in our hearts and minds. I invite you, if you wish, to share some of your memories in this post. Even though his life has come to an end much sooner than it should have, he will live on through us.

My thoughts and prayers go to all of my brothers and sisters in the community, especially his partner Steve Loki. We all mourn and remember together and I hope those grieving remember that there is always somebody to talk to and share your pain with.

We may have our differences, but we are all part of the same community and same family. We are here to care for each other so please, do not hesitate to reach out to another if you ever need to.
