Jack was a rags to riches tale come to life. From poor beginnings to amazing success, his life was beyond anything he imagined. He said that he owed his good fortune to the love of his life, Andy. Jack was especially proud of the awards he won for his paintings in juried shows. He wasn’t sure if mentioning his homes in Longboat Key and North Truro would appear to be bragging. He was a sage advisor to family and friends and touched many lives. We will miss him terribly. Services at Temple Sinai, 5505 Forbes Avenue, Squirrel Hill on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 1 PM.

Send Condolence

To the Weiss Family Our connection with Jack had so many points of contact over his life and ours. From early on we knew him as the mench that he was. It was always a great pleasure to see him and be with him. He had the facility to make others feel special. To speak of his good deeds would be endless, clearly there were many. He was a person who was adored by so many. We only wish we could have one more hug. He will be greatly missed.

Dear Andy and family. I was so saddened to hear the news today. Jack was always one of my most favorite people. I cannot think what else to say, just simply how sorry I am for your loss. Love from me and especially my daughter Goldi who was lucky enough to hear great stories from the two of you about her namesake and more.
