Aaron Tucker may not work for a Jewish organization, but he's no stranger to philanthropic work for Jewish non-profits. A committed lay leader of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, he helped found and currently co-chairs their Chicago Next Generation Board, inspiring his peers to become activists for the voiceless.
With the professional title of Chief Investment Officer for mixed-use and shopping center real estate developer
it's no wonder Aaron is equally passionate about strategic growth and investment in the Jewish future. In addition to his work with USHMM, Aaron serves as chair of the JUF Young Real Estate Group, a Next Generation Trustee of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and also sits on the steering committee of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago Facilities Corporation, which oversees numerous Jewish buildings including local JCCs and Hillels.
Chief Investment Officer, Tucker Development
ON THE SIDE:
Passionate about several non-profits. Art, architecture, skiing, sailing, cooking and travel too.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 10 WORDS OR LESS:
Extroverted Type A
IF TIME AND MONEY WERE LIMITLESS, I WOULD:
Shift even more time to non-profit work but continue working on development – I love it. And spend the winter tracking snow storms and chasing powder.
