Eli’s Cheesecake Joins All of Chicago in Mourning the Loss of Jim Tyree, Chairman of Mesirow Financial & the Chicago Sun Times and former Chair of the Board of the City Colleges of Chicago

Jim Tyree Sun Times

The Chicago Sun Times, a newspaper, saved by the creativity and vision of Jim Tyree, has a full page ad today mourning the loss of Jim Tyree from his associates at Mesirow Financial. The words are perfect and describe the tremendous impact that Jim had on Chicago and the loss that all of us will experience. Jim had a unique understanding of business and he really cared about his friends, his customers and the community. If it was a discussion about financing our business, the City Colleges of Chicago, our insurance or his ongoing support of the Happiness Club, Jim always made time for others and always helped others succeed.

The Mesirow Tribute to Jim states:

Visionary Leader

Civic Champion

Tireless Advocate

Inspiring Mentor

Trusted Confidant

Role Model

Eternal Optimist

Large Hearted

Humble Hero

Valued Partner

Family Man

Regular Guy

Friend

Always missed. Never forgotten.

No one could say it better!

Eli’s Cheesecake bakery tours

Food Network rated this tour No. 1 in its survey of tasty tours, and Eli’s Mary Gale says it’s no surprise.

“Everyone loves cheesecake,” she says.

Eli’s employee Margie Ware has been conducting the popular tours for the last couple of years and always starts with a historical overview of the company — how Eli Schulman came up with his signature dessert for his now-shuttered steakhouse. The tour is very hands-on, with factory workers politely fielding any questions as you trace what goes into a cheesecake and how they are made, decorated and packaged. Groups of less than nine can take a 40-minute tour of Eli’s Cheesecake World (6701 W. Forest Preserve Dr.) at 1 p.m. Monday through Friday without a reservation. The $3 fee includes a slice of cheesecake. Call (773) 736-3417 or visit www.elicheesecake.com.
