The Tyree Institute is named in memory of Jim Tyree, former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mesirow Financial. A humanitarian who focused a great many of his volunteer efforts on children and education, Mr. Tyree’s name on the Institute honors his commitment to innovative approaches to learning and a dedication to youth, community, professional development, and shared-knowledge systems. An inaugural beneficiary of the James Tyree Foundation, Wolcott School is proud to be associated with such an outstanding Chicagoan.
