Sam Brunson

photoSam Brunson is a proud resident of Chicago, proud fan of the Padres and Charges, proud father of wonderful kids, and, all in all, probably just too prideful. He teaches tax and business law at Loyola University Chicago, listens to lots and lots of jazz, and used to be a competent saxophone player and pianist. He was never a terribly competent guitarist, but enjoys that, too.

  1. Just a little note about Jimmie Ross and the tax fiasco. You really need to do your homework before you put something in black and white. You very obviously did not research beforehand. Jimmie was in the middle of a lawsuit where he received a settlement. At that time this particular suit was not taxable as he was advised by an attorney and a CPA. His case was to be grand fathered in. He has ALWAYS paid his taxes hence the reason he checked with two different professionals. Also in your research had you done it you would have known that the IRS was with holding money out of this social security check for what they said they were owed. I could go on and on. So my point being before you write about someone make sure you get the total correct story.

    Hello Sam,
    Have you heard about “Leonard Arrington and the Writing of Mormon History”? I would love your thoughts on it.
    Enjoy your posts!

  3. I just read your article on obeying the prophets personal preferences. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I feel like far too many people have forgotten that not everything every leader says from the pulpit is from God. Thank you so much for taking the time to write what you did. I am sure you got backlash for it, but thanks for taking one for the team!

  4. Sam, I’m curious about your family background. I’m from Utah and a descendant of Seymour Brunson who joined the Church in 1831. I would like to hear your story. I’m retired and live in California. Thanks. Dean

    Mr ‘brunson, it is none of your business how much money the church has. Why don’t you just be quiet and get your fibble little mind on other things
