Ken Weiss
Associate Director of the Youth Crisis Center Foundation

Kenneth Z. Weiss is the Associate Director of the Youth Crisis Center (YCC) Foundation.  The foundation supports the work of Jacksonville’s Youth Crisis Center.  It will be his topic for the March 13th South Jacksonville Rotary Club's meeting.  YCC is known and has been recognized both nationally and statewide, but is little known by most residents of Jacksonville.

Prior to his current position, Weiss was CEO of Georgian Galleries, Inc. from 1976 until 2008.  Georgian Galleries owned and operated both Ethan Allen and La-Z-Boy Furniture retail locations in West Virginia and North Florida.

From 1964 until 1968 he attended the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida where he studied Management and Marketing.  After serving in the US Army, Weiss attended West Virginia University, in Morgantown, WV,  where he received a Board of Regents Degree in Journalism and Public Relations in 1978.

A Rotarian since 1979, Weiss served as President of the Rotary Club of South Jacksonville in 2000 and 2001.  Among the numerous organizations and boards on which Weiss has served are:  Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America, Hospice of Northeast Florida, Congregation Ahavath Chesed, Mental Health America, Deerwood Country Club and the Mountain Area Chapter of Cystic Fibrosis.

Weiss spearheaded the “Big Wheel” reading program between South Jax Rotary members and students at Hogan-Spring Glen Elementary School and was one of the early supporters of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program during its infancy in District 6970.  His favorite volunteer positions are when he coached youth soccer and basketball teams.
