Sheldon Barris Toronto's Bio:
Toronto native Sheldon Barris has enjoyed success in not one, but two careers for more than three decades. In addition Sheldon Barris has carried on a multitude of other personal and business ventures. As owner and president of Jorlee Holdings Limited, the Toronto-based private mortgage lending corporation he founded in 1992, he and his team provide financing for a range of construction and development projects, throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Sheldon Barris graduated from the University of Toronto, with a Bachelor of Science degree, and, thereafter, Osgoode Hall Law School, when he graduated in the top third of his class. Although he jokes today that he excelled in “pushing teachers’ buttons,” he was in fact always a consistent top ten percentile student. Sheldon then opened his first law practice immediately upon graduation.
