Today marks three years since we lost our dear friend, Jimmy Olayos. From the day he started at Spear, he distinguished himself as a leader. A combination of thoughtfulness, sensitivity, and ambition made Jimmy well respected by anyone who knew him.
Jimmy was a member of the Spear Future Leaders Program and a Spear Regional Director at just 31 years old. A rising star in his community as well, Jimmy worked nights and weekends teaching injury prevention to young athletes. He also teamed up with then Brooklyn Borough President (now Mayor of New York City) Eric Adams to help fight the opioid crisis in his community.
Linked at the bottom of this page is an article that Jimmy finished the week of his passing. It perfectly encapsulates his love for others and the thought and care he put into his practice.
