WHEREAS, Jaime Dejuras was born on March 24, 1948 in Calamba Philippines. He and his wife Nenita Dejuras came to the United States in 1972 to pursue the American Dream; and,
WHEREAS, In order to achieve the American Dream, Jaime worked full time in commodities, attended Graduate school, and tried to assist in raising a family when he could. He had sought opportunities to ensure he could provide more for his family; and,
WHEREAS, Jaime Dejuras sought outside opportunities and with a literal push from his wife, Nenita, and assistance from his Aunt Jean, he made his first venture in Dunkin Donuts in 1990. With the help and support from his family, Aunt Jean, Nenita, Anna, and Carlos, Jaime purchased and operated his first Dunkin Donuts located at 3310 W. Addison. From there it was history, as of today they own a total of 8 stores; and,
WHEREAS, Jaime has been an integral part of his children's lives, his grandchildren's lives, along with many of his current and past employees, friends, customers and family. With the decisions he has made, the accomplishments he achieved, the strides that he has taken, he has had such a positive impact on many around him, regardless of it being direct or not. He has so much emotion and passion for people that it is no wonder why he has made so many friends and earned respect from his peers; and now therefore,
BE IT RESOLVED, That we, the Mayor and members of the City Council of the City of Chicago, gathered here this 10th day of April 2013 A.D., do hereby commend Jaime Dejuras for his many accomplishments and his compassion to his family, friends, and acquaintances; and,
