2020 Featured Speaker
Charles "Peanut" Tillman
NFL Man of the Year
Founder, Cornerstone Foundation
Charles Anthony ‘Peanut’ Tillman made a name for himself as an American football cornerback. He played college football at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, and was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft.
A 12-year Bears’ veteran, and a beloved Chicago legend, Tillman retired from the game in 2018, and now makes frequent appearances on Fox Chicago Sports shows.
Tillman and his wife Jackie have three daughters and a son. After his second-youngest daughter was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy, resulting in a heart transplant, Tillman created the Cornerstone Foundation, a nonprofit organization helping to improve the lives of critically and chronically ill children throughout Chicagoland. He advocates for a wide variety of other philanthropic organizations and causes, most recently rowing across Lake Michigan to raise awareness – and nearly $200,000 – for childhood cancer.
