Support the family of Steve Fox

We are truly heartbroken by the recent passing of our partner and dear friend Steve Fox. We set up this page to support his wife and daughters as they navigate their way through this extremely difficult time. Specifically, funds raised will be used to cover the costs associated with their sudden loss of a husband and father. 

Steve was an “old soul” with a knack for seeing things in a new light. He was strongly principled, deeply empathic, and fiercely kind. His passion for politics and policy were exceeded only by his passion for people — his family, friends, and colleagues, as well as the multitude of strangers affected every day by politics and policy. He had a burning desire and uncanny ability to envision and realize positive change, both societally and in those closest to him, making him an incredible human being and a truly transformational leader. 

Steve was one of the first political professionals to enter the marijuana advocacy space. While most viewed it as a losing cause that wasn’t worth the fight, he saw it as a cause worth fighting until it was won. And win he did — he spent nearly two decades fighting to end cannabis prohibition, and he played pivotal roles in several major state and federal reforms. He was also instrumental in the creation and development of the legal cannabis industry that is now replacing it.

In working to legalize and regulate cannabis for medical and adult use, he found a way to fight simultaneously for several of his core values: To promote justice and compassion, to advance freedom and liberty, and to nurture and inspire the human spirit. Humbly righteous, judiciously aggressive, and relentlessly ethical, he was committed to doing the right thing, doing it the right way, and doing whatever it takes to get it done. 

Please join us in celebrating Steve's life by making a contribution in support of his family by the end of the month. All funds will be directed to his wife Lisa, and his daughters, Jadyn and Nyomi.
