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.
