IL Judge Married 1 Clinton E. Jacobson none-2 bichon frisses Follow your "gut" when making important personal decisions. I graduated from the University of Illinois. I taught elementary school in Chicago. I saw that a lot of kids were less fortunate than I was. I became a lawyer and spent most of my career representing indigent people.
I did many trials and enjoyed courtroom work. (At one time I thought I'd be an accountant, but did not enjoy doing my own checkbook.)
In 1992 I became a Judge. I love this job because I am constantly learning something new. Although
I can retire. I won't until I find something better.
Currently, I'm very interested in resolving disputes through the use of mediation. My focus has been on court related mediation, but I've recently learned about a peer mediation program that exists at Senn High. If any of my Senn classmates want to know more about the peer prpgram at Senn let me know. The organizer of this program might want some help.
My wife and I have been married for over 30 years.
We both enjoy cycling and have ridden all over the U.S.,Canada and Europe.
We have one son Alex. He has lived in N.Y. and London. He has performed in musical theatre and is currently interested in performing on radio. However, like a lot of 20 somethings work is not easy to find right now.

IL Executive Married 2 Clinton Mr. Coorlas 2 One of my favorite quotes is from W. Clement Stone "Do it now" and I have adapted it to my life:
"Do the work first, then reward yourself."
After Senn, I attended the University of Illinois where I was a member of Pi Lambda Phi fraternity. I received my B.S. degree in Accounting in 1964 and my C.P.A. status two years later. I then earned my J.D. Law degree from DePaul University and was admitted to the Illinois Bar.

Julie is a certified yoga instructor and has two children. Mitchell is married and is a attorney in Chicago. I am the proud grandfather of Raymond (10) and Zoey (7).

IL Computer Consultant Married 2 Clinton Mr. Bayer 3 grandsons, 1 granddaughter Never try teaching a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig. I graduated from the U of I with a BS in electrical engineering and moved to Minnesota to work for Univac designing computer based defensive weapons systems for the Navy. I was peripherally involved with the Gemini and Apollo spacecraft guidance systems. My wife Ellie and I returned to Chicago where I continued to develop software and design systems including the first UPC cash register for grocery stores, an early hard disk subsystem for the PC and software for international bank to bank funds transfers. I was a VP of Software Development when I tired of corporate America. I started my own company and have been a software consultant for the past 16 years. My work-from-home lifestyle allows me to stay up late, sleep late, and do non-work activities during the day. I love the work I do (so why retire?).
My two biggest passions (other than Ellie) are self discovery, photography and travel. I have only travelled in 19 countries but have been to many of them multiple times. My self discovery was enhanced by being involved in marriage encounter, est, group therapy and various seminars. Having a wife who is a psychotherapist is also great for learning more about myself. I enjoy taking photos but also enjoy the post processing phase using tools like Photoshop to enhance a picture and exercise the creative potential of my right brain.
I have never attended a reunion before. I am expecting to enjoy being with people I was friendly with at Senn and getting acquainted with people that weren’t in my circle back then.
