Statement from Mayor Emanuel on the Passing of Don Wade

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

As a city, we are saddened to hear of the passing of Don Wade. For nearly three decades, Don entertained and enlightened his listeners and the lifetime of contributions he made to our city will be truly missed. Don’s zeal for his job was matched only by his love for his wife Roma and though his voice has fallen silent, his influence will echo on in Chicago for years to come.
