Jack Ehrlich, 81, lifelong resident of Chicago, son of Abe and Florence and brother of Lois, all who preceded him in death, passed away peacefully in his sleep in Carmel, Indiana on November 14, 2015 from the effects of Parkinson's disease which he determinedly fought for almost two decades. Jack is survived by his loving wife Carol, his children Craig Ehrlich, Rhonda Ehrlich (Jeff Tryba), Ilene Green, and Mitchell Ehrlich, his seven grandchildren whom he adored, and one great grandson. He was a CPA, an attorney, a trusted advisor to his clients, a lifelong fan of the Cubs, and a good and loyal friend. Jack lived a life in service to others. He was a board member of Anixter Center in Chicago, and founded the Anixter Center Literacy Program, which was later renamed the Jack Ehrlich Literacy Program in his honor. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.

A memorial service for Jack Ehrlich will be held December 19, 2016 at Anixter Center, 2032 N. Clybourn Avenue, Polk Conference Room located on the 3rd floor beginning at 9:30.

Chicago, Ill. (Oct. 9, 2015) — Rebecca Clark has been named Vice President of Program Development, Innovation and Accountability for Anixter Center, one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the Chicago area serving children, teens and adults with disabilities and related challenges.

This is a recently created position for the nonprofit as new President & CEO Dr. Tere Garate is placing an increased emphasis on sustainable growth, while championing analytics and accountability to ensure the success of every person served.

With more than 15 years of experience in complex project management and program development in the field of education, Clark brings to Anixter Center a unique perspective on serving people of all ages with disabilities.

“With her intuitive problem-solving abilities and strong relationship-building skills, Rebecca has earned a wonderful reputation as a strategic partner in developing large-scale programs,” said Dr. Garate. “Perhaps even more important, however, she brings to Anixter Center deep experience in using data and research to guide decision making and then to evaluate the results of those decisions.”

Before coming to Anixter Center, Clark served as the Director of School Support for Chicago Public Schools for more than 10 years. During that time she directed a team of 45 staff to provide services to CPS students. Most recently she was the Partner Success Engineer for TeachMatch, a startup in Chicago. There she consulted with K-12 school districts across the country to increase efficiency and quality in hiring practices.

Clark has a Master of Arts in Social Service Administration from the University of Chicago and a Bachelor of Science from Northwestern University.
