This is Us
As a life long resident of Chicago's North Shore, Jill was raised in Wilmette, graduating New Trier High School. She later moved to Highland Park, and then to Lake Forest in 1987, where she currently lives with her husband of 37 years. Their adult children went through the public school system in Lake Forest, and are now working in their professional careers in Chicago. Jill became a Grandma (Grammy!) to her first grandchild in 2020, which was a bright spot during a pandemic year, and when she's not working or helping with Grandson, Max, you may see her out walking with her GoldenDoodle, Sir Gordon (AKA Gordy!). On a side note, her husband, Marshall, is the owner of Marshall's 584 Personal Strength Training Studio in Lake Forest.
