Deslippe’s family released a touching statement on Tuesday, expressing their sorrow:
Nathan Deslippe was a beautiful kind caring soul who wanted only to help and motivate people. He inspired so many with his mentoring, guidance, encouragement, support and personal example.
His death is a tragedy. We are so sad to have lost a young man who had so much potential and meant a lot to so many people. The posts to his Facebook page are overwhelming in describing the son that we love so much. Nathan loved his family, his dog Gyzmo and his many friends. He excelled at his work at Voices.com, MLD Solutions Inc., Yoga Shack, and his leadership businesses. He achieved so much in his short time including his yoga certification, John Maxwell certification and more.
Nathan Deslippe is a bright light that has been dimmed but will always be remembered.
