It is with deepest sadness and sorrow that we relate the sudden and untimely passing of late Professor Chuck Hamburg, from natural causes, on Saturday, July 14, 2018. He retired from Roosevelt University this past May. As some of you may recall, Chuck had been with Roosevelt University since 1987, when he was named Director of the fledgling Manfred Steinfeld Program in Hospitality Management at Roosevelt University, Chicago, which he established and led until 1993. As Carol Brown stated, “A beloved member of the faculty for over 30 years, Chuck was the first department chair of our program. He contributed so much to our program over the years and he will be greatly missed by all.
Chuck is survived by his son, Joshua Carl Hamburg and daughter in law Stacey Sheller, Joshua’s mother, Gail Vida Hamburg, his sister, Betsy Spiegel, his niece, Randy Unger, great nephew, Rob and family; his nephew, Jeremy Spiegel; and his first cousins, Kenneth Schnide and Mary Schnide.
