In early January 2013, Leon thought he pinched a nerve in his upper back after working out. He went to a back specialist who, after an X-ray, couldn’t detect any problem. A week later, still having some
pain, which radiated around to the front of his chest, Leon went to his primary doctor and asked for a chest X-ray. The X-ray revealed a 4.2cm by 4.3cm cancer mass in his left lung. Further testing revealed that the cancer metastasized to his liver, upper spine, lower spine,
chest, ribs, femur, and hip.

Leon attended Immaculate Conception grammar school in Chicago,  Notre Dame High School (1985-89) in Niles, and Lewis University (1989-93) in Romeoville where he played baseball.

Leon has spent the last 10 years as a Special Agent for the U.S . Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) working six years in Arizona and the last four years in Chicago. Prior to working for the DEA, Leon worked as a patrol officer and later a detective for the Northlake
Police Department.
