Foundation Executive Director Betsy Dubovsky announced on behalf of the board:

“The board and staff of The Staten Island Foundation are devastated by the sudden and unexpected loss of our beloved Chairman, Allan Weissglass. Allan was an important, wise and knowledgeable voice as a founding board member and Chairman for the past 11 years. As Vice Chairman, at the passing of our founding Chairman Harry Doherty, he stepped in without hesitation to help guide the work and I will always be grateful for that and his support and guidance throughout the years,” Dubovsky said. “Staten Island has lost one of its very best friends and ardent supporters. It is a better place because of him.”
