About Jonathan Agin

Jonathan became the first Executive Director of Max Cure in September 2015.  Jonathan's daughter Alexis was diagnosed with a terminal and inoperable brain tumor in April 2008 and passed away in January 2011.  Prior to Alexis' diagnosis with cancer, Jonathan practiced law in Washington, DC and Maryland full time since 1999.  
Jonathan began playing soccer when he was 5 and continued playing through college at John Carroll University where his team went 47-6-3 and won three consecutive division titles.  Despite Jonathan's lifelong dream of playing professionally never materializing, he continues to play occasionally and has been active in coaching his children's youth teams.  Following his daughter's death, Jonathan's passion turned to fighting childhood cancer to honor Alexis and all children diagnosed with cancer.  Jonathan's passion and focus transferred from the field to his work in the childhood cancer community and will once again find its way onto the playing field in an effort to raise money and awareness to support families facing financial strain as a result of having a child in active treatment for cancer.
