In Memory of Brian Sokol

Brian Sokol

The Schmidthorst College of Business is sad to announce that Brian Sokol, associate director for the Paul J. Hooker Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, passed away following his courageous battle against brain cancer.

Sokol held a bachelor’s and master’s degree in business administration from the college, was an early inductee into the Paul J. Hooker for Entrepreneurial Leadership Hall of Fame himself, served eight years on the Hooker Center Advisory Board and was a Falcon Investor for The Hatch since its inception. He was a passionate entrepreneur and developed a number of consumer and industrial products.

Sokol was a passionate golfer and a very talented guitar player. Most of all, Sokol loved his three daughters and family with all his heart. The college will miss his bright smile, quick wit, devotion to the college and its students and his passion for entrepreneurship.
