Jeremy Wolf

From his family's jewelry business to graduate studies in history to brand acquisition at Groupon, for Jeremy Wolf, professional pursuits, Jewish involvement and giving back have always gone side-by-side-by-side.

 After much time at Groupon, where among his achievements were helping launch Groupon Goods and leading quarterly seminars on negotiation for staff, Jeremy moved to home leisure retailer The Great Escape in 2015, where he serves as director of e-commerce and business development. At the same time, he serves on the Jewish Federation of North America's National Young Leadership Cabinet and the Chicago Children's Choir Ambassador Board.

He and his wife, Melissa, are dedicated to being charitable with their time and money and can frequently be spotted at fundraisers for JUF and Lurie Children's Hospital.
