It is with great sadness that Pivot Point International, Inc. announces today the passing of its founder and mentor, Leo Passage, as the result of a degenerative lung condition.  

Leo Passage truly lived his life to the fullest, motivating everyone who knew him to do the same. He encouraged everyone he met around the world to follow their heart and their dreams.

His personal life mission became his company’s mission: through Pivot Point education Leo Passage inspired thousands of people around the world. His humility was well known and respected - always sharing with others without self-interest and possessing a timeless, creative spirit.

A constant inspiration to those around him, Leo always saw the bright side of things. Throughout his life and illness, he continued to care about his biggest passions: his family, his Pivot Point and his hairdressing students around the world.

Leo’s beloved wife Lenie, his children Robert and Corrine, along with their families, will continue to ensure that the global Pivot Point family continues to advance the empowering mission that Leo started almost 50 years ago.

Visitation: Friday May 13, 2011, 3:00-7:00 pm followed by funeral mass. St. Joan of the Arc, 9248 North Lawndale Avenue, Evanston, IL 60203. A celebration of his life will be held after the mass at the church.
