For fun ….
Chris is a basketball fanatic!! He loves watching professional sports, little leagues, but most of all his sons play basketball. His oldest son is a point guard for New Trier’s team and you better believe Chris will be rooting from the front row! He also loves taking walks with his wife, playing chess, and loves anything that makes him laugh, including a good joke. He has tons of energy and is a great listener.
