Posted: July 24, 2018 05:38 PM CDT MADISON, Wis. – Extremely sad news hit a very tight-knit Madison community like a ton of bricks on July 13. Chef Rod Ladson, the executive chef at Bonefish Grill on Madison’s west side, had died of a heart attack. It was a huge and sudden shock to family, friends, and community members who loved the generous and beloved Madison chef, businessman, mentor, and selfless supporter of his community. Ladson was just 50 years old. Kaleem Caire, founder and CEO of One City Schools, was one of those community members and longtime friends of Chef Rod that was devastated by the news.
