John Schneider has issued a statement regarding the untimely passing of John Lauck, President and CEO of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, who passed away on February 7 due to complications from a tragic bike accident.

"John was truly an amazing man who loved and was loved,” says Schneider. "No one ever knows when they will go on their last bicycle ride, walk in the park or flight. Love one another and tell each other so. You were a great man, a visionary, a friend. We miss you dearly.”
