Urban folks

Monday through Friday John and Marcia Volk live in a three-story row house in a trendy Chicago neighborhood near DePaul University. Work drew them to the Windy City in the 1970s.  He’s a former advertising agency owner and now does management consulting and she’s a media strategist.

The couple’s city roots run deep.  In addition to business opportunities, they enjoy the many ethnic restaurants, shops and cultural events at their doorstep.  Their two grown daughters and families – including a new baby granddaughter – live nearby.
