After graduating from the University of Illinois, he took his first job as a math and science teacher at Waldo Junior High School in Aurora. Soon thereafter, he launched a career in the financial services industry. Today, Oberweis Asset Management manages over $1 billion in growth stock assets.

Jim also serves as the Chairman of Oberweis Dairy, a business founded by Jim’s grandfather, Peter, who began delivering milk to his Aurora neighbors in 1915. Under Jim’s leadership, the Dairy has grown from a small home delivery company with one ice cream store and 50 employees, to 46 ice cream stores with more than 1,200 employees.

ROTARY/One is made up of professional men and women who meet weekly to collaborate on business as well as use our collective talents and resources to make a difference in the world.  Just in this last year ROTARY/One has contributed in a meaningful way to significant Chicago community and international projects, including:

•    providing summer internships to 250 Chicago Public High School students through Job1, our signature project, now in its 9th year;
•    enabling women in an economically depressed Chicago neighborhood to receive access to mammograms and education about breast cancer prevention and awareness;
•    impacting 1000+  students, teachers and family members from a school district in Thailand by enabling them to access clean water;
•    building shelters for people in Haiti who were still homeless a year after the 2011 earthquake;
•    initiating a peace forum with local community and government leaders to address the rash of gun violence in Chicago.
