Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

I want to thank everyone who made comments and sent condolences via my husband's guest book. Your reflections truly represent the way he has touched so many over his many years as an educator and friend. His high school yearbook said it so well: "Would that there were more like him!" Thank you again for your thoughtfulness. Most Sincerely,

He was a great leader and person. I recall riding my bike through Kean and talking to him as if he were a student, a very natual guy with no "im better than anyone else" philosophies. A true giant and one of a kind.

Woodridge still remembers the Weiss family. Mr. Weiss was well respected and well liked. The Krieger, Adler and Kantrowitz families all have fond memories of the Weiss family. I remember going to school with Paula at an early age. The Woodridge Village Board held a moment of silence in memory of Mr. Weiss at their 5/6/13 Board meeting.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences to Dr. Weiss's wife Bernice ( whom I worked with for many years at the College of New Jersey) and to the entire family.

I am very saddened to hear of Dr. Weiss' passing. As a graduate of the MPA Program at Kean, Dr. Weiss taught classes that I attended. I always had great admiration for him and viewed him as what I thought a "teacher" should be, more than just about the books. As an administrator in a non-profit I often think of not only him, but the many lessons on life he taught me. He will be truly missed.

I was a student of Dr. Weiss many years ago. He was such a knowledgeable man. I was a history major and had a 29 year career in education. Dr. Weiss also recognized my name at the time, and we discovered he served in the with my cousin .

I remember Dr Weiss from my days on Student Government. He was truly supportive of us and never viewed us as a threat -- he was a true educator and will be missed. My condolences to his family, but the greater comfort is his tremendous legacy.

Dr. Weiss was such a wonderful President at Kean University. He was a true advocate for the students at Kean. He was always a positive leader and he will be sorely missed. Sincerely, Martina Manco DelRocini-Class of 1984

I am sorry for your loss. Nat, ahem... Dr. Weiss, was not only the president of my college but one of my profs, plus I was active in student government and had interacted with him often on that basis. His class on NJ State and Local Government was one of the best ever. Nat was also a very nice, down to earth fellow. One time as an undergrad I was to receive an academic award at a dinner hosted by Nat. Parents were also invited and my Dad, whose education ended after 8th grade, was thrilled to...
