Today’s heroes: Tony and Lisa Yuscius

Thursday, Apr 9, 2020

* Tony and Lisa Yuscius have been friends of mine for years. They’re just good, solid people and a great couple. I cannot say enough positive things about them.

As a public service, their company BlueRoomStream.com (click here to subscribe) has been providing free video access to Gov. Pritzker’s daily briefings during the crisis.

And now this…

In the spirit of public service, BlueRoomStream is offering four different worship services/sermons on Easter Sunday, lifting its usual paywall so all can safely observe the Christian holiday from their homes.

Tony Yuscius, president of parent company Advanced Digital Media, said he was inspired by a reporter’s question about Easter worship during a stay-at-home order that was asked at one of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s daily COVID-19 press conferences. The popular public affairs streaming platform is currently offering free coverage of the governor’s daily press conferences in the absence of Illinois legislative committee hearings and House and Senate floor action.

“Like many people, I want to do something that is of real help during this pandemic,” Yuscius said. “My wife, Lisa, told me, ‘You have the means to do that, so do it.’”

Yuscius contacted one of his subscribers, the Catholic Conference of Illinois, for help in reaching out to a diversity of Christian denominations.

The result is four different services/sermons that will begin streaming on BlueRoomStream on Sun., April 12 at different times. Each worship option will remain available on the platform after its initial broadcast time. No password will be needed to view the worship offerings.

The following worship services/sermons can be viewed at www.BlueRoomStream.com on Easter Sunday:

    6 a.m. Roman Catholic Easter Mass, Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, Archdiocese of Chicago
    10 a.m. Easter Sermon, Bishop Jeffrey D. Lee, Episcopal Diocese of Chicago
    10:30 a.m. Easter Sermon, Bishop Frank J. Beard, Illinois Great Rivers Conference, United Methodist Church
    11 a.m. Easter Worship, Rev. Shannon J. Kershner, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago

    This is a great service. Thank you to Tony and Lisa for doing this. I have been attending Mass via live stream since the Gov. issued the stay at home orders. Miss my church family but know this is for the best. #AllInIllinois

    My heartfelt thanks to the Yuscius couple and to you too, Rich.

    I will be able to follow the early service at my home church, FUMC Peoria, as well as the Easter sermon of our Bishop - this is so, so good.

    Thank you for the information and thank you Mr. and Mrs. Yuscius.

    Wonderful people and it’s so nice to hear them doing this.


  13. - truthtopower - Thursday, Apr 9, 20 @ 1:47 pm:

    Tony comes from great stock. His parents were constituents of mine. I used to knock on their door (back when we could do that) before every election, and they were the nicest people!


  14. - JoanP - Thursday, Apr 9, 20 @ 1:50 pm:

    Oh, that’s wonderful. It’s been great to see how generous and helpful people have been during this crisis.

    Thanks, Tony & Lisa.

    It’s the inherent goodness of so many in IL that keeps from falling off the cliff of despair.

    Kudos to Tony and Lisa for being some of those inherently good Illinoisans that make our state despite all of it’s flaws and problems still a good place to be.

    Bravo


  17. - Chitown Drummer - Thursday, Apr 9, 20 @ 3:53 pm:

    God bless Tony & Lisa for this wonderful support of the faith community during this difficult time! I’ve worked with Tony and Advanced Digital Media for many years — he is a consummate pro and outstanding human being.

    What a great thing to do and the epitome of All In Illinois.
