Ronald Jericho, 80, of Chicago, passed away on March 12th, 2023. He was born on June 9, 1942, in Chicago, IL. Ronald was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Lorraine (nee Oster), and his parents, Claire, and Ludwig. He is survived by his children and grandchildren - Lisa and her daughter Eliana, Robert, his wife Hilary, and daughters Layla and Bryn. Ronald was a man of many passions, but his dedication to his family, friends and work colleagues and his devotion to helping non-profits were among his greatest joys. His dry sense of humor and kind-hearted nature were a source of inspiration to all who knew him. Ronald was a strong advocate for equity and believed in supporting education funds to help correct the wrongs of the past. This was shaped by his parents' experiences fleeing Germany, and he was committed to making the world a better place for future generations. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the Lori Jericho Scholarship Fund at Inspiration Corporation 4554 N. Broadway Suite 207 Chicago IL 60640 Services Monday 12 PM at Chicago Jewish Funerals, 8851 Skokie Blvd. (at Niles Center Road) Skokie. Interment Ridgelawn Cemetery.

Dear Lisa and Robbie,

Your dad was so very kind to me after my husband Tom passed away December 2021. Tom worked with your father at Waste Management for a long time.
He phoned and checked to see how I was doing throughout these past few years. I appreciated his concern as to how things were going and how I was doing.
It meant a great deal to me. I am so sorry for your loss. I ask God to bless your family at this difficult time.

God bless you all Tina Maurer - Sun City Arizona
