It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mario Ortiz, President of Illinois Premier. As we grapple with this devastating loss, we also reflect on the man Mario was and what he represented not only within our organization, but to all who came in contact with him. He was a man of faith, a cherished friend, a proud father, a devoted husband, and a humble leader. This leaves an irreplaceable hole in some of our lives, in our organization and the lives of all the players he coached along the way.
