On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society, it is with genuine sadness we report we have lost a dear friend. Jeff Weiss, a lifetime museum member, a major benefactor, ardent supporter and former board member has gone west.

Jeff was a philanthropist whose patronage of the museum was demonstrated not only in his generous financial support but in his dedication to the museum’s educational mission. Jeff particularly loved introducing aviation and the wonder of flight to young and old. He was instrumental in the early success of the museum and his untiring efforts on the museum’s behalf will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jeff, his family and friends as well as with the family and friends of the individuals who perished in this devastating accident.

With our deepest condolences,

Amy Rogers
Executive Director
1940 Air Terminal Museum

On this day, June 27, 2010, Jeff, along with Captain A.J. High, would give a presentation called “Meet the pilot”, where each would talk about their careers and adventures in aviation to a captive audience at the monthly Wings & Wheels event at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum.
