In Memory


Judd Weinberg

Judd Weinberg, a Northwestern life trustee, longtime benefactor and alumnus of Northwestern’s School of Commerce (now Kellogg), passed away on February 20, 2020, at age 93. He helped globalize D. Gottlieb & Co., the family business founded by the father of his late wife Marjorie — who also attended Northwestern — in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s as a market leader in the technology of non-gambling pinball machines. After selling the company to Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. in 1976, he became a consultant and board member for the movie company. He also served as chairman of the executive committee of the financial services firm he founded, Judd Enterprises.

The Weinberg family has generously supported Northwestern, including a 1998 gift to the College of Arts and Sciences, which was named in honor of Judd and Marjorie. Notably, Judd’s son, David, is a University trustee, a former vice chair of the Board of Trustees and member of the Weinberg College Board of Visitors. Judd is survived by three sons, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. For more information, visit
