It is with great sadness that I reflect on the passing of Trustee Emeritus Theodore Weber. He died on Monday, November 8, at his home in Chicago, Illinois.
Mr. Weber served as a trustee for The Chicago School of Professional Psychology for nearly 25 years and was awarded Emeritus status in 2009 in recognition of his unwavering commitment to education, the field of psychology, and the Chicago community. He was a principal at the Chicago accounting firm of Hochfelder & Weber, P.C. Mr. Weber was involved in Chicago's business community for more than 35 years as a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts (AICPA), Illinois CPA Society and the Chicago Estate Planning Council. In addition, he was a Trustee and former treasurer of Chicago Congregation Sinai. He received a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Michigan and a J.D. from Northwestern University Law School.
In honor of Mr. Weber, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology recently established the Theodore Weber Scholarship, a new fund that awards monetary scholarships to students enrolled in the Clinical Psy.D. program at the Chicago Campus. One or more annual scholarships will be awarded to current students who demonstrate excellent academic performance, financial need, professional promise, and a proven record of serving as an agent of change within the community, in keeping with the values of The Chicago School.
On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, I extend our deepest condolences to the Weber family. He will be missed.
