Jules M. Weiss, M.D.
May 8, 1928 - March 5, 2013
Jules M. Weiss, M.D., long-time Sausalito resident and San Francisco psychoanalyst was born in New York City to Isidor and Florence Weiss.
Dr. Weiss graduated from Harvard in 1947, magna cum laude, and Phi Beta Kappa honors. He received his medical degree from New York University Medical School in 1951 where he was a member of Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Society. Jules was an anatomy instructor at Washington University Medical School, where he published many papers based on his research with the then-new electron microscope.
Jules was commissioned a captain in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and served from 1955 to 1957 in Robert Espagne, France. Following his military service, Jules undertook training in psychiatry in San Francisco at Mt. Zion Hospital and the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute. Upon successful completion of his training, Jules entered private practice in San Francisco. In addition to his practice, Jules was an active member of the Psychoanalytic Institute where he held several offices and authored many papers on the subject of psychoanalysis. Jules was in practice for 53 years-up to two days before he entered the hospital where he later died of heart failure.
Jules is survived by his wife of 56 years, Dorothy Schellenger, whom he married while serving his country in Robert Espagne, France, and his two daughters, Patricia (Brendan Sweeney) and Susan (Christopher Alonzi), and his granddaughter, Sarah Alonzi. He is also survived by his nephew, Stephen Weiss, M.D. (Sara). Jules is remembered as a kind and brilliant man with a whimsical sense of humor who was devoted to his family and profession. Jules had a passion for literature, music and art. A celebration of Jules' life will be held at a later date.
