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.
Jennifer Daniels '93 S92
Even before stepping foot on campus, Jennifer was acutely aware of Princeton's proud tradition of service. Inspired by her alumna interviewer and then her alumni mentors while a student, Jennifer knew she wanted to give back to future generations of alumni.
When she and her family (husband Keith '92 and their children, Stephen and Katie) moved to Bucks County, PA, she promptly updated her volunteer information with the University. Shortly thereafter, the Princeton Club of Philadelphia called for help, the first step in Jennifer's trajectory of volunteer service. After assisting with local alumni schools committee efforts, she was soon asked to join the Princeton Schools Committee (PSC) as a mentor. She is now a vice president of the Princeton Club of Philadelphia and has been vice-chair and chair of the PSC, serving on the Executive Committee of the Alumni Council since 2013. In addition, she has been a '93 Reunions Committee member since 2007 and will continue as Class Participation co-chair for her 25th. And, by the way, she's also '93's Treasurer.
Jennifer's greatest joy comes from connecting and collaborating with other alumni. She is honored and humbled by the opportunity to work with Jeff as Vice President of the Alumni Association and Vice Chair of the Alumni Council. "Jeff's call to ALL Tigers resonates profoundly with me as I have personally benefited from the beckoning calls made by other alumni. I am excited to partner with Jeff and the other members of the Alumni Council to continue the tradition of making the 'best damn place of all' even better."
