JON CORNISH BIOGRAPHY

Jon Cornish was selected a CFL all-star three times. He is a two-time Grey Cup Champion (2008, 2014). Cornish, after being awarded as the CFL”s Most Outstanding Player, was awarded the Lou Marsh Trophy as Canada’s top athlete for 2013. Jon Cornish is a Human Rights Advocate, speaking out for LGBT2S+ and minority rights. Jon is best known for his nine years playing for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League (CFL). In 2014 Jon took home the CFL’s Most Outstanding Canadian award for the third time.

Jon Cornish worked in private wealth management for TD’s Private Investment Counsel and has been with TD for 5 years. Cornish is currently a level 3 candidate in the Chartered Financial Analyst Program. He is a CFA Charterholder and now works for RBC Dominion Securities as an experienced wealth professional with a background in behavioral finance. He enjoys building mutually beneficial relationships through helping clients reach their objectives.

Most recently, Cornish was recently elected as the Chancellor-Elect of the University of Calgary’s in July 2022.  “It is the greatest honour of my life,” said Cornish prior to the official announcement held at the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning on April 22. “In serving the students, alumni, staff, volunteers and faculty of the university, and the city of Calgary, I will champion the values of safety, inclusivity and achievement, helping make our great university the best in Canada.”

Striving to be the best is something Cornish knows all too well. As a running back for the Calgary Stampeders, he was named the Top Canadian Player three years in a row, Most Outstanding Player, Canadian Top Athlete and he led his team to two Grey Cup Championships. For these and many other records set during his nine years at McMahon Stadium, he was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2019. Although Cornish has been recognized for his achievements, it’s something he puts his name behind as well — literally.

The Jon Cornish Award is now presented annually to the most outstanding Canadian student athlete in NCAA Football. It is Cornish’s passion for supporting others, for promoting inclusion and for building a better community that developed his career after football.  Since retiring from the CFL, Cornish has continued to invest in Calgary — volunteering and supporting the community he proudly calls home.

Seeking to provide opportunities for BIPOC communities, he founded and is president of the Calgary Black Chambers which has, to date, provided more than $60,000 in scholarships to help university students and supported 300 high school students with skill training to aid in their careers. He has been a champion for LGBTQ2S+ communities by encouraging sports organizations to ensure all athletes feel safe playing through the You Can Play Project.

When not helping clients with their financial goals as an investment adviser, he can be found MC’ing events at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, working directly with at-risk youth for Wood’s Homes, or waving the flag to rally the fans at home games. With such a strong commitment to the community, it’s easy to see why Cornish is often called upon to inspire others through his dedication and commitment to improving the lives of others.
