CLASS OF 1957 AND 1991
Ernie Wish is an inspiring example of DePaul’s Vincentian value of public service. A 1957 DePaul graduate, he was a university trustee for over 25 years and founder and first president of Ledger & Quill, DePaul's School of Accountancy alumni organization. Wish chaired the highly successful Cornerstone Capital Campaign and as Chairman of the Chicago United Way/Crusade of Mercy, helped raise $90 million annually. He is the epitome of a dynamic volunteer who in his everyday life espoused to the highest ideals of St. Vincent de Paul. Not only does he share his hard-earned life's fortune with the less fortunate, but he has committed his life to the service of others.
