M. Jude Reyes
Occupation: Cochairman, Reyes Holdings
So private that he makes big brother Christopher (No. 30) look like an oversharer, Jude is, according to Crain’s, “Mr. Inside, concentrating on financial issues” for their distributorship. Raised in a large Hispanic-Irish family in Maryland, he lives in Kenilworth. Forbes estimates Jude’s net worth at $3.5 billion, the same as Christopher’s, tying them for the third-richest person in the area (behind only Kenneth Griffin [No. 28] and Sam Zell [No. 8]). No wonder he was able to drive the new $550 million expansion of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, whose board he chairs.
