In Sympathy - The Honorable Jerome Feller

Tuesday, January 18, 2022

Our Court mourns the passing of Judge Jerome Feller on January 18, 2022.   

Judge Feller joined the EDNY bench on September 23, 1985 and served through June 30, 2013. As a bankruptcy judge, he was particularly sensitive to the plight of debtors and worked diligently to protect the rights of all parties-in-interest.  Before joining our court, he had a distinguished career of public service which included having served 16 years [March 9, 1969 through September 22, 1985] with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

After retiring from the bench on July 1, 2013, he and his wife Miriam traveled and spent as much time as they could with their family. Judge Feller was very active in his Temple.

In addition to Miriam, Judge Feller is survived by his wonderful family: his children, R’ Nesanel Feller, Rabbi Yosef Feller, Mrs. Rucky Lesin, and Mrs. Temyma Klein; many grandchildren; and his sister, Mrs. Reyna Hisiger.

May his memory be for a blessing.
