Please be patient, new CHS web site coming to you soon!

Thank You Jill Sahakian

Dear Friends of Chicago Hearing Society:

After 19 years of dedicated service, Jill Sahakian will retire in early April from her position as Director of CHS, a division of Anixter Center. While it was a difficult decision for Jill to make, she wants to spend more time with her elderly parents and be available to do as much as possible for them.

I want to thank Jill for her many years of devoted service and the passion she brought to the position every day. Jill has been a wonderful champion for CHS, faithfully guiding the organization through some challenging times. In two years, CHS will celebrate its 100th anniversary. Thanks to Jill's leadership, CHS is well positioned to continue its success into its next century of service.

For the past 19 years, Jill has been dedicated to serving CHS and the Deaf community. While we will miss her, we thank her for all she has accomplished and wish her many enjoyable years of retirement.

A search has begun for a new Director for CHS. Interested applicants should email a cover letter and resume to or fax the documents to 773-973-5268.

Kevin Limbeck
President & CEO
