Thanks for giving Jeremy his due

Usually I write to rant about one thing or another our villages are doing that disappoints me. However, I was very pleased to see Jeremy Schumann's picture and information on Wednesday Journal's front page, June 19. I didn't realize that 20 years had passed with Jeremy at the Jewel in River Forest, where I normally shop for groceries, and I enjoyed reading some of his story, of which I wasn't aware.

All I can say is that Jeremy does a great job at Jewel and my week's shopping wouldn't be complete without our mutual analysis of what's happening with our Cubs. He's a great person and someone I look forward to seeing when I do shop. The River Forest Jewel has many employees who are very friendly and make you feel at home while at the store, and Jeremy is foremost among that group.

Thanks to the Journal for giving Jeremy the recognition that is his due.
