Jeffrey Alan Wisor

Jeffrey Jeff Alan Wisor, 55, of Beaumont, passed away peacefully at home, Sunday, May 12, 2014. Jeff was born September 25, 1958, in Warren, Ohio, to James Lewis and Jean Superak Wisor. The measure of Jeff's life stretches far and wide from the wife, whom he adored for more than twenty-one years, to the son, Axle, 16, of whom he was infinitely proud, to the theater students whose lives he touched and guided. In his eighteen-year tenure at Lamar University as Assistant Professor and Director of Technical Theater, he taught by example; with a rare sense of humor, patience and fairness. In the words of graduate Robbie Watson, Today we ponder the life of mentor, professor, friend, confidante, [and] a second father figure. Any remembrance of Jeff would be remiss without a mention of inventive words and phrases affectionately known to many friends and students as Wisor- isms. These may be shared Thursday, May 15, 2014, from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at a gathering at Broussard's, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont. His Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, May 15, 2014, at St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica, 700 Jefferson Street, Beaumont, under the direction of Broussard's. He will be profoundly missed by his eleven siblings; Sandra Levelle, John Dann and Deborah Davis all of Warren; Marsha Wheelock and her husband, Bob of Cincinnati; Roman Dann, Jr. and his wife, Sue, of Warren; Steve Dann and his wife Linda, of Champion, Ohio; Rae Ann Mansfield and her husband Jeff; Jim Wisor and his wife, JoAnn; and Maribeth Tucker, all of Cortland, Ohio; Eugene Wisor and his wife, Jessica, of Corvallis Oregon, and Michael Dann and his wife, Carol of McMinnville, Tennessee. He is preceded in death by his parents; and step- father, Roman Dann Sr. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School, 5950 Kelly Drive, Beaumont, Texas 77707, for the education of his son, Axle.
