About Edmond Zisook

Edmond Zisook was elected a Park Board Commissioner in 1973 and served as the Board President from 1975 to 1979. As important as that is to the history of the Park District of Highland Park, it’s just a small part of the story of this extraordinary man whose life’s work is embedded in the fabric of the community. Edmond died in March, 2023.

When you talk to people who knew Edmond, you hear many wonderful stories of how he deeply influenced their lives and come to realize that important parts of the Park District of Highland Park owe their beauty—and even their existence—to his unwavering dedication to the community. We hope his story may inspire you to find ways to make the community that Edmond loved an even better place to live, work and play.
