Dennis Zeisler

1947 - 2020

Family Statement

March 30, 2020

Today, Dennis Zeisler passed away peacefully at home with immediate family by his side (wife Carol, daughters Jenny and Sarah, and sons Jeff and Nate) after a long battle with Pancreatic cancer. If there’s a silver lining to the shelter in place order over the past few weeks, it’s that all six family members have been able to be together to share memories, help out, and just be in the moment with one another. 


Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions on travel and gatherings funeral services will not be held. Instead, we will celebrate Dennis at the first Virginia Wind Symphony concert in the fall when we will toast to him and celebrate his dedication to music, teaching and family. We hope you will join us to celebrate him as a friend, mentor, colleague and father figure to so many.


In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation  to the Dennis J. Zeisler scholarship fund established at Old Dominion University to provide financial support to instrumental music majors at the institution. To give, simply click the link below, select “scholarships” and type “Dennis Zeisler” in the scholarship name box. 


Thanks  for your thoughts, words and prayers in this difficult time for our family, we shared them with Dennis and enjoyed knowing how much he meant to so many of you.
