Providing for the Families of Fallen Police Officers and Firefighters

of Cook County


Joseph (Joe) Ahern was named Executive Director of the 100 Club of Chicago in November 2010.

The 100 Club of Chicago, founded in 1966, is a not-for-profit organization which supports the surviving dependents of law enforcement officers, firefighters and EMS personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty.  The 100 Club reaches out to all federal, state, county and local public safety personnel stationed in Cook County.

Since its inception, the 100 Club of Chicago has served 245 families with more than $9 million, of which more than $4 million was devoted to educational assistance for the dependents for their undergraduate, vocational education and graduate studies.  Currently there are 21 dependents receiving assistance from the program and there are an additional 41 children who will be eligible for assistance as they reach college age.

Previous to Joe's leadership of the 100 Club of Chicago, he served as President and General Manager of CBS 2 Chicago (2002-2008); President and General Manager of ABC 7 Chicago (1985-1997); and as a senior advisor on Chicago's 2016 Olympics Committee.

Joe has a wealth of experience and dedication to other civic and charitable causes including the American Cancer Society, Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago Central Area Committee, World Business Chicago and Loyola University Council of Regents.


Joe and his wife, Susan, reside in Barrington Hills with their two daughters, Kate and Ally.  Another daughter, Meredith, is a Chicago resident.
