Growing up on the Southwest side of Chicago, near Midway, Chuck’s father was a police officer for 31 years and always worked a second job so his mother could stay home with the kids. A Catholic household, Chuck and his brother went to Catholic Grammar School and High School with all the families who lived in their neighborhood. Many parents were police officers and firefighters and the entire community instilled values of relentless work ethic, patience and service.

“Relentless, passionate work ethic is still what drives me today, at home and in the office. We try to instill these same values into our children while I focus on being effective and impactful in the lives of my clients.”

Chuck and his wife, Jen, a Special Education Teacher for Chicago Public Schools, were married in 2003 and have three beautiful children. They love living in a Chicago neighborhood today that is similar to how Chuck and Jen were raised - a close community, comprised mainly of city employees with large families and dual incomes, raising their children under similar values and beliefs that make their community what it is.

Outside of the office, Chuck spends his time as an active member of several organizations in his community. For over a decade, he has been a member of the Old Neighborhood Italian American Club and is also a member of the Holy Name Society at St. John Fisher, the parish he and his family call home.

Chuck is most active, however, as a board member at St. Rita High School, an all-boys Catholic High School on Chicago’s South Side, where he and his brother graduated. As one of the youngest members of the board, Chuck appreciates the wisdom the senior members impart and values the impact he can have leveraging his expertise on the Foundations Board by helping manage the school’s endowment. In February of 2017, Chuck and Jen were named Couple of the Year, an honor they accepted with great gratitude and full hearts.
