Compher siblings develop strong bond through hockeyAugust 6, 2019 7:46 pm
CHICAGO, IL – J.T. Compher and his sister, Jesse, developed a love of hockey in the family home when they were kids.
The siblings played in a concrete extension their parents, Valerie and Bob, built on their house in Northbrook, Illinois, about 25 miles northwest of Chicago. J.T. would often fire slap shots at Jesse, who originally wanted to be a goalie.
“I don’t know why I ever thought that was a good idea,” Jesse said. “It was a lot of fun and super competitive, but I think it kind of made us who we are now.”
The childhood games have led to big things for the Comphers.
