    It’s Jack Benny
    It’s on Jack Benny Dr. in Bowen park in Waukegan
    He was a huge radio & TV star that grew up in Waukegan
    There’s also a bust of him in an alley named after him in Waukegan, just off of County St., which he considered a great honor.
    On the back of the bust is one of the best jokes from his show: A mugger demands money from Jack, who was a famous cheapskate on the show. The mugger says “Your money or your life” Benny doesn’t answer right away. The mugger repeats it & Jack says: “I’m thinking it over!”
