James T. Amsler

Please accept my condolences for your father. I worked very closely with him at Salem State College, as he was president and I was founder of the Criminal Justice program. As a fledgeling program it was Dr Amsler who encouraged the program and myself. That program is now 600 hundred students strong with 9 PhD teachers in large part due to your father. I wanted you to know this accolade. Professor Ed LeClair

I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the Amsler Family at this difficult time. Your Dad was a kind and caring person and many have lovely memories of him - Both he and your Mother were so very caring when my husband, Charles, (who worked alongside Jim at Salem State for many years) died and I shall ever remember them with great fondness. They were both good friends of ours and I for one shall miss them. Know your memories of both of them will help you through your sadness. Sincerely, Lois Kiefer

Over the past ten years, my husband and I have been privileged to know Jim as a treasured friend, and we will greatly miss his delightful company. His intelligence and energy enlivened many a discussion at our dinner table in Chatham. We loved and admired him, and extend our deepest sympathy to his family and many other friends.

Dr. Amsler arrived at NASC the same year I began my undergraduate experience there. I found him to be totally approachable, genuinely concerned about student matters, and dedicated to improving the school in every area.
As he handed me my diploma four years later, he thanked me for my service and called me by name. I wonder how often that happens today!!
God Bless!
