Felice Weinberg Nelson



​Felice Weinberg Nelson is the president of Weinberg Hosiery Co., a family-owned company on the near South Side of Chicago founded by her father. Felice has been an integral part of her family’s business since 1986, and believes in giving back to the community that has fostered it for 69 years.

A first generation American, Felice knows firsthand the resilience and resourcefulness brought to the U.S. by its diverse refugee and immigrant communities. Working with RefugeeOne was a natural fit as she sought to support the needs of Chicago’s refugee population. Felice has previously volunteered with JUF, the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, GirlForward, Skokie School District 28 ELL Center, Youth for Understanding, and Northbrook School District 28.

Felice and her husband Richard have 4 grown children and live in Chicago
