Christopher Forest Longsworth, CEO and founder of Plantation-based Invesca Development Group, has died. He was 36.
Longsworth died on Dec. 22, according to an online obituary. His company confirmed his death on its website. The obituary did not give a cause of death and the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office said more testing was required to determine the cause. Longsworth died in West Hollywood.
“Chris was a leader, a visionary and a shining light of all we can accomplish with hard work, creativity and passion,” according to the company’s website. “We will keep his memory alive in all of Invesca’s future endeavors. Our thoughts are with his family and everyone who loved and respected him.”
Longsworth founded Invesca in 2001. His other ventures include the Nexus shooting range in Davie, according to his LinkedIn.
