Olson Ad Agency’s Founder & Chairman Dies

The founder and chairman of Olson ad agency, John Olson, died on Saturday after a 13-month battle with cancer.

According to the agency’s website, John Olson started the Olson Agency, Minnesota’s largest advertising firm, in 1992. The firm is now nationally renowned and employs more than 450 people across six cities in North America. Kevin DiLorenzo, a long-time friend of Olson, says he lived such a big life that he didn’t even let his cancer diagnosis slow him down.
