History

In 2014, the Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners dedicated the new Jesse White Park and Community Center. The facility was made possible by a partnership between the City of Chicago, Chicago Park District and the Jesse White Foundation. The community center was designed by Ghafari Associates with site improvements by Wolff Landscape Architecture. The building received a 2015 Design Excellence Award from AIA Chicago. Contemporary in style, this 30,000-square foot structure appears as though it is made of a series of boxes, several of which have large expanses of glass, allowing for a feeling of warmth and openness. It includes a gymnasium and gymnastic center, computer room, community and meeting rooms, game room, fitness center, locker and bathrooms and offices. In addition to providing a large array of recreational and cultural programs, the building serves as the official home of the Jesse White Tumblers. The Chicago Park District Board of officially named the park and building in honor of Jesse White, an accomplished athlete, scholar, mentor and public official. As a boy, Jesse White loved participating in gymnastics, and later, he taught gymnastics in college and worked as a gymnastics coach and teacher for the Chicago Park District and YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago. He our country as a paratrooper in the United States Army's 101st Airborne Division, Army Reserves and a member of the Illinois National Guard. He went on to play professional baseball with the Chicago Cubs organization, and then had a 33-year career with the Chicago public school system as a teacher and administrator. Elected as Secretary of State for Illinois 1998, Jesse White was the first African-American to hold that position. He is now the longest serving person in this post. He previously served as the Recorder of Deeds of Cook County, and for 16 years as a member of the Illinois General Assembly. In 1959, White founded the internationally known Jesse White Tumbling Team to serve as a positive alternative for children residing in Chicago's Cabrini-Green and Henry Horner public housing communities. The organization has guided thousands of youngsters to a path of athleticism and scholarship. Since the team's inception, over 13,000 young men and women have performed with the team. White has worked for over 52 years as a volunteer with the team to help kids stay away from gangs, drugs, alcohol and smoking, and to help set at-risk youth on the path to success. In 2007, White established the Jesse White Foundation as a vehicle to help the city’s youth. Without question, Jesse White Park and Community Center contributes to this goal.

Description

Located in the Near North Community, the amenities this facility has to offer include: Jesse White Park and  Community Center Fieldhouse, a Gymnasium, a Gymnastics Center, a Fitness

Multi-Purpose  room with  stationary bikes and free weights, meeting rooms and a  Computer & Learning Area Room.  After school activities are offered for youths and a full scale gymnastics program is available for toddlers and youth.   The park also hosts special events and family fun activities. 

In 2014, the Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners dedicated the new Jesse White Park and Community Center. The facility was made possible by a partnership between the City of Chicago, Chicago Park District and the Jesse White Foundation. The community center was designed by Ghafari Associates with site improvements by Wolff Landscape Architecture. The building received a 2015 Design Excellence Award from AIA Chicago. Contemporary in style, this 30,000-square foot structure appears as though it is made of a series of boxes, several of which have large expanses of glass, allowing for a feeling of warmth and openness. It includes a gymnasium and gymnastic center, computer room, community and meeting rooms, game room, fitness center, locker and bathrooms and offices. In addition to providing a large array of recreational and cultural programs, the building serves as the official home of the Jesse White Tumblers. The Chicago Park District Board of officially named the park and building in honor of Jesse White, an accomplished athlete, scholar, mentor and public official. As a boy, Jesse White loved participating in gymnastics, and later, he taught gymnastics in college and worked as a gymnastics coach and teacher for the Chicago Park District and YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago. He our country as a paratrooper in the United States Army's 101st Airborne Division, Army Reserves and a member of the Illinois National Guard. He went on to play professional baseball with the Chicago Cubs organization, and then had a 33-year career with the Chicago public school system as a teacher and administrator. Elected as Secretary of State for Illinois 1998, Jesse White was the first African-American to hold that position. He is now the longest serving person in this post. He previously served as the Recorder of Deeds of Cook County, and for 16 years as a member of the Illinois General Assembly. In 1959, White founded the internationally known Jesse White Tumbling Team to serve as a positive alternative for children residing in Chicago's Cabrini-Green and Henry Horner public housing communities. The organization has guided thousands of youngsters to a path of athleticism and scholarship. Since the team's inception, over 13,000 young men and women have performed with the team. White has worked for over 52 years as a volunteer with the team to help kids stay away from gangs, drugs, alcohol and smoking, and to help set at-risk youth on the path to success. In 2007, White established the Jesse White Foundation as a vehicle to help the city’s youth. Without question, Jesse White Park and Community Center contributes to this goal.
