Jeff Wieser '74
Jeff Wieser '74, incoming President of the Alumni Association and Chair of the Alumni Council, has ambitious plans for the next two years: he wants every alumnus to enjoy the experience as much as he does.
"My ten years on the Alumni Council have been eye-opening to all the wonderful things going on at Princeton. My goal in this humbling, extraordinary position is to help make the Princeton alumni experience meaningful for ALL Tigers.
Jeff has been volunteering for Princeton for over 40 years, starting as vice president of the Class of 1974 immediately after graduation. He has been involved in Annual Giving, Reunions, and his local regional association. Not only has he been the Vice Chair of the Alumni Council, he has also served as its Treasurer, chaired its Committee on Community Service, and sat on its Class Affairs Committee.
In 2010, after a 35-year career in banking, Jeff left the corporate world to become the President & CEO of Homes with Hope, Inc., a local nonprofit agency that provides housing, food and casework to over 100 people every night in Westport and Norwalk, Connecticut.
Jeff lives in Westport with his wife Pat. They have three grown children, Casey (and Sam) Haverstick, Teddy '06 (and Allie '07) and Charlie, and four wonderful grandchildren.
Sara Judge '82
Sara Judge '82 began volunteering for Princeton within two years of graduation. Living in Beijing, half way around the world and eager to get a group together who shared the Princeton experience, she and several fellow Princetonians put an ad in the The Peoples Daily inviting alumni to come to a reception. And so began what is now the PAA of Beijing.
Intertwining her love for China and for Princeton has been the hallmark of Sara's life. She has been a consultant for US companies marketing in China, a director of Asia for AFS International Programs, president of China Institute in America, and now Global Director of Asia for Avenues: The World School. Through all of her travels and raising her three children Will McCalpin' 12, Matt McCalpin '14 and Haley McCalpin (Wake Forest '17), Sara has continued to be a vital volunteer for Princeton. She was the regional president in China, has been an AG solicitor for her class, chaired the Alumni Council's Volunteer Stewardship Committee, served on two other Alumni Council committees and is an ASC volunteer (for China and Connecticut).
Sara now looks forward to moving to Princeton and to her new roles as Vice President of the Alumni Association and Vice Chair of the Alumni Council. "The Princeton community continues to amaze and inspire me, and I'm deeply honored to join Jeff in this new role of representing and engaging alumni around the world."
