John Schiff's story

John was diagnosed with AML, Acute myeloid leukemia, in October 2017. After several unsuccessful rounds of chemo at CBCI, a specialist clinic for treatment of blood cancers at Presbyterian St Luke’s in Denver, John went home for hospice care.

Though he was greatly weakened by his difficult hospital stay, John managed to enjoy normal life with his family. His determination and positive attitude were inspiring. He relished his final days with his beloved wife, growing granddaughter, good wine, friends and family.

After two months at home, his leukemia began to advance rapidly. He lived life to the fullest until he wasn’t able to anymore. On March 2nd, 2018 after only 4 days on his death bed, John left this earth. His family, friends and colleagues will miss him terribly. His legacy as a generous, kind, wise and sometimes mischievous man will live on in the memories of all who knew him.

Light the Night Walk and Fundraising

We have created the fundraising team "Schiff's Soldiers" in John's honor and encourage everyone who was touched by John to join for the Light The Night Walk on September 26th, 2019 in Washington Park just outside of Denver, CO.  Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation to team Schiff's Soldiers.

Thanks to dedicated people like you, funds raised from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light The Night Walk help support the research of blood cancer treatments that save lives.

Be sure to check our team page frequently to see our progress!


Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!

    "I joined JDE World on John's Product Strategy team in 2000 and enjoyed his leadership and mentorship for over a decade. Thank you, John, for a great experience. You made difficulties less painful, and triumphs more enjoyable. I particularly loved talking rugby with you, treading lightly when the All Blacks defeated the Springboks and taking my lumps when the reverse was true. I'll miss you and the light you brought to the world."
