Jonathan Weiss, 59


PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Jonathan Weiss passed away March 15, 2022. Jonathan was the loving husband to Aleen Weiss for 29 years, devoted son to Howard and Elaine (Spitz) Weiss, and proud father to his daughters Marni and Nina Weiss.

He was a graduate of Classical High School, Class of 1980, where he served as class treasurer. He graduated from Georgetown University School of Business Administration in 1984. Jon received a master’s degree at George Washington University’s School of Computer Science.

Jon returned to Rhode Island to help run the family businesses. He ran National Business Furniture with his grandfather, Nathan, and father, Howard, where he later served as executive vice president. He served as executive vice president of Weiss Properties, Weiss Realty LLC, and Lancaster Realty LLC. He worked alongside his maternal grandfather, Saul Spitz, as a managing broker at Spitz Weiss Realtors and was later joined by his wife, Aleen.

Jon was an active member of The Georgetown University Alumni Association and served on the board of directors at Temple Beth-El in Providence. He was a member of the Aurora Civic Association.

Jon had friends from all walks of life and remained close to friends from Camp Bauercrest, Classical High School and Georgetown University, to name a few. He was known for his witty personality, love and knowledge of music (especially classic rock), for being a devoted Georgetown Hoyas fan, and his loyalty to friends and family.

Jon courageously fought brain cancer for a year and a half but sadly succumbed to the disease. He is survived by his wife, Aleen, daughters Marni and Nina (fiancé Nick Lorusso), sister Margery Morris and brother-in-law Steven Morris, niece and nephew, Jaclyn and Tyler Morris.
