Blake and his wife, Shalee, live in Chicago with their children Ella and Sean. In 2010, days after her first birthday, Ella was diagnosed with epilepsy. Unfortunately her battles with epilepsy continue to this day, suffering multiple seizures per week. With Ella as inspiration, Blake became a member of CURE’s Lay Review Council (LRC) contributing to CURE’s grant review process by reading research proposals from a lay perspective and helping to ensure the stakeholder point of view is represented at all stages of the review process. Soon after, he joined CURE's Audit Committee. Blake also is a member of the Foundation Board at Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, serving as Vice Chair of the Neurosciences Committee.
