Teteris, MD, Nicholas J
1929 - 2020
In memory of Nicholas J. Teteris, MD, loving father and grandfather, dedicated physician and patriotic veteran. Born in Martins Ferry, Ohio to Greek immigrants. He attended Linsly Military Institute where he graduated as valedictorian. He went on to receive his undergraduate degree from Washington and Jefferson College. From there, he pursued a medical degree at The Ohio State University. His medical education was interrupted by the Korean War, during which time he served in the United States Air Force as a flight surgeon with the 38th Bombardier Wing before coming back to Columbus to complete a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology. He subsequently joined the Department of OB/GYN at OSU where he was deeply committed to patient care and medical education. He practiced in this context until the mid 1990's when he took over the position of Medical Director of the Operating Rooms at Ohio State. He held the position until his retirement in his mid 70's. He will be deeply missed by his son, John, (daughter-in-law, Laura); daughter, Georgia; grandchildren, Nick, Olivia, Jack, Tatum and Cash; longtime devoted companion, Pamela Shaver; former spouse, Jean Teteris; sister, Dorothy Leos; nephew, Jimmy John Leos; and many friends and colleagues. Family will receive friends from 4-7PM Friday, September 11, 2020 at SCHOEDINGER NORTHWEST CHAPEL, 1740 Zollinger Rd.

What a wonderful life Nick had! He was a dedicated physician and fiercely loyal to his family and friends, his country, his university and his traditions. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.

Hi John and family. I am out of town and just - sadly - saw this announcement. Frankly honest but always a genuine mentor. His students' best interest were always at his forefront. While learning from him and working alongside "Uncle Nick" for many years, our residency class chose the right man to model when we initiated the "Nicholas Teteris OSU Residency teaching award" in 1986. It was my special blessing to meet him by serendipity at Dr. Alice's office a couple of years ago. I was given and gladly grasped the chance to tell him - face to face - what a great influence he had been in the good parts of my life. The world has lost a bit of its richness - so sorry for you and us all! Now he's with Bouts!

For 50 years I’ve known Dr. Teteris. He delivered my daughter. From the day I met him I always felt at ease. Loved his candor and truthfulness. John, you took over for him. So much like your father. Sorry, that it was his time to cross over to the other side. My prayers to the Teteris family. Will always remember him.
