Jill Susan Landesberg-Boyle

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.

Jill leaves her adoring husband Vincent and her beloved children Aliyah and Joshua. She was the precious daughter of Melvin and Arlene Landesberg and the cherished sister of Karen Steinfeld and her husband David and Ilise Samolyk and her husband John. She was the loving aunt of Michael Steinfeld, Jordan Steinfeld, and Bryanna Samolyk. She was the much-loved granddaughter of the late Leo and Harriet Landesberg and of the late Samuel and Bessie Silverman.

A funeral service is scheduled at Lincoln Park Cemetery, Warwick, RI on Friday, September 16th at 11 am.  Contributions in her memory may be made to The Nature Conservancy or a charity of your choice.

    My heart is hurting for Dr.Landesberg’s family. She was my total inspiration after i met her at SLU & became her grad assistant. She was a great friend, mentor & role-model for a lot of peers and students. I wish someone could give me a call or email, maybe Vinnie if he remembers me. My deepest sympathy & prayers for her family.
