We couldn’t get Jackson Chiu to smile for this photo because he is not one for public recognition. Nevertheless, Jackson is a big part of my staff, serving as our office liaison with Chinatown. Some of us call him “Mr. Service Requests”, because he diligently tackles an insane amount of these for the residents of our ward. When he isn’t working in the office, Jackson is doing one of two things: Spending time with his wife and 1 year-old son, (with another baby on the way,); or two, he's eating. The man loves food more than anyone I know. He even keeps his own bottle of hot sauce on his desk. 🙂 We thank you for all you do, Jackson! #25thWardChicago #MostDiverseWard #BestStaff #Chinatown
