Welcome New Board Member - Lee Roupas!
Lee is the Assistant State's Attorney, First Chair, Criminial Prosecutions Bureau of DuPage County
Lee joins the CASA of DuPage County board of directors with 10 years of experience as the assistant state’s attorney in DuPage County. He manages hundreds of felony cases annually and is no stranger to the juvenile court system. Prior to his current role, he was assigned as a supervising attorney in the juvenile division, where he was introduced to CASA and first learned that every child in DuPage County abuse and neglect court has a trained volunteer advocate.
When talking with Lee he shared, “I have always been impressed with the role volunteers take on as they advocate for children.” He continued, “It is truly a unique and special service that is provided to the community.” Lee said he wanted to join the board of directors because he knows how important the role is that CASA plays in a child’s life and he wants to help make sure that the program in DuPage County remains strong. He knows not all communities are as fortunate as DuPage to have a CASA program, but a successful and vibrant CASA directly correlates to safe children, thriving families and a prosperous community. Lee's draw to CASA was through his passion for children and his first-hand experience with advocates' ability to protect society’s most vulnerable victims.
Lee is a resident of DuPage County in Glen Ellyn with his wife, who is also an attorney, and two boys—ages 6 and 3. Welcome Lee!
We are fortunate to have you on our board of directors!
