Jewish Council for Youth Services is proud to honor Board Alumnus David E. Kohn with the Director for Life award for his dedication to the agency, as well as recognize the Kohn/Mitchell Family for their service and generosity to various Chicago causes.

The family has a distinguished history of philanthropy in Chicago, including the Bernard A. Mitchell Hospital at the University of Chicago, the Marjorie I. Mitchell Multimedia Center at Northwestern University, and the Marjorie I. and Bernard A. Mitchell Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Chicago.

David continued the family tradition of community service when he joined the Jewish Council for Youth Services Board of Directors in May 2002. During his time on the board, David served as the Vice President of Operations in 2009–2010. He also served on almost every committee and chaired several committees throughout his decade-long tenure with JCYS.

Professionally, David is Vice President at MJ Partners Real Estate Services in Chicago. Having joined the firm in January 2006, David has been involved in over $750 million in self storage real estate transactions nationwide for institutional and private ownership groups. He received a Master of Business Administration from the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business at DePaul University and the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation. David currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Illinois Self Storage Association. David, his wife Erin, and their daughter Harper and son Ari live in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago.
