March 27, 1945 - April 9, 2020 Of Albuquerque, NM passed away unexpectedly at his home. He is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Helene (nee Stilman). Raised in Chicago, then Florence, Italy, he studied psychology at the University of Munich. He went on to receive a master�s degree at Temple University in clinical psychology, became certified as a psychoanalyst at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis, and later received a PsyD at California Southern University. Jan was a psychoanalyst in private practice, a teacher and a supervisor for mental health professionals who understood the importance of high-level training in the field. He was the clinical director of the Colorado Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies. Loved by his psychoanalysands, supervisees, and students throughout the U.S. and internationally, he spent his life�s work training and educating practitioners so that they would become skilled analysts and psychotherapists. He did so by maintaining a psychoanalytic practice on the phone for over 30 years. Jan had a thirst for knowledge which led him to enjoy many hobbies outside his work. With his unique style and clarity of thought, he was able to bring psychoanalysis to a new evolution of thinking and practice. His gift for understanding patients and being able to help them achieve happiness and success over a lifetime was acknowledged by his colleagues throughout his career. In his young adulthood, being fluent in several languages, he edited books and taught art history in Florence, Italy to American college students studying abroad. He believed education should be available to all and has shared his lectures openly on the Internet. He has been acknowledged for his work, including four books which have been dedicated to him. He will be missed by all whose life he touched. In his memory, donations can be made to the Colorado Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies.
