SAYING GOODBYE | Ellie's Deli Co-Founder Killed in Tragic Motorcycle Accident, GoFund Me Set Up


Last week brought tragic news to the Naperville business community as we learned of Faris Sweiss' passing. Faris was one of the founders of Ellie's Deli on 75th Street. He was also a father, brother, son, and US #Veteran. Faris was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident on August 30, 2020. He had just turned 32.

A GoFund Me page has been set up for his two young children. It reads:

"Hello family and friends and friends of friends and/or anyone with a heart. These two beautiful Young boys have just recently lost their father and my baby brother, Faris Sweiss, the youngest sibling of 4, in a tragic Motorcycle accident on Saturday 8/30/20. As if 2020 has not been soo hard on everyone already, this had to happen to them. Not to mention my family and his closest friends and relatives who are just beyond devastated! I started this go fund me page to help these amazing young boys through life especially when it comes to college and their futures. So this money will go directly to their education and nothing more. Please help me guide these boys so that one day when they grow old enough to understand, they can see their father was loved and appreciated as these boys will appreciate all the love and support they could get from anyone right now. God Bless You for your support."
