Elias Weiss – THS Friend & Patron

It is with great sadness that THS has learned of the death of a long-time friend and patron, Mr. Elias Weiss. 

Mr & Mrs. Weiss founded the Jeffery Weiss Literary Competition as a memorial for their son after his untimely death at a young age in the early 1980s.  Jeffrey was a loyal THS member and his name is immortalized through the yearly contest that bears his name. 

THS plans a tribute to the Weiss’s in an upcoming issue of Marquee.
