He has a much longer history with Camp Daggett, though: Ed first set foot at Camp Daggett in 1975, and he has helped at camp over the years including a position as a summer camp counselor. Ed hails from the Chicago South Suburbs. He attended Northern Illinois University where he earned a bachelor’s degree with a double major in Accounting and Computer Science plus a master’s degree in Computer Science. In addition, he has passed the Certified Public Accounting exam.
Ed originally started working as a computer consultant for a variety of companies including Argonne National Laboratory and the Annual Chicago Marathon Race. Before coming to Camp Daggett, he operated his own Shell Service Station for 13 years.
Ed’s interests and hobbies include scuba diving, snowmobiling, travel, maple syrup production, and running. He has run the Chicago Marathon four times and has always finished in the top third. In 1995, Ed was instrumental in starting Camp Quality Illinois, serving as its first director. This one-week camp for children suffering from cancer is still going strong more than 20 years later. For several years he has also served as the Office Manager and Maintenance Director.
