Jill Susan Landesberg-Boyle was a caring wife, mother, sister and friend. She left this world suddenly on September 11, 2022, at age 58.
She was born to Melvin and Arlene Landesberg on January 5, 1964. After graduating from high school, Jill chased her dreams to become a trailblazer in higher education, which led her to Amherst, Massachusetts where she earned her Doctoral degree and met the love of her life Vincent Boyle. Together, they had twin babies: Aliyah and Joshua.
Dr. Jill Landesberg-Boyle's professional career was meteoric, happily taking her family around the country where she moved from the position of Dean of Students of a major southern university to the Presidency of a college in the State of Florida. She has authored several peer reviewed journal articles and was a highly sought-after speaker at higher education conferences across the country.
Jill loved spending time with her family, shopping and studying flora and fauna. She had a deep love for butterflies and her garden, and even deeper love for her husband, children, and close-knit family. Jill influenced and left a significant mark on every person she has ever met and will be deeply missed. Jill filled her home with a continuous stream of love, laughter, and humor that will live a lifetime.
