About Jesse

Jesse Ruiz has earned a reputation throughout Illinois as an outstanding attorney, a tireless volunteer, and a stalwart champion of the rights of children and minorities.

The son of Mexican immigrants, Jesse was born and raised in the Roseland neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, where his father worked the evening shift in a commercial bakery. After graduating from his parish elementary school, St. Anthony of Padua, Jesse went on to Marist High School on Chicago’s Southwest Side – a commute that required taking three different CTA buses.
