WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today issued the following statement after the passing of Nestor Weigand, Jr., who was a leader in the real estate industry in Kansas, CEO of J.P. Weigand and Sons and served as the President of the National Association of Realtors:

“Before running for public office, one of the first people I sought advice from was Nestor Weigand. Often in Washington, D.C. or in my travels across the country, when I said was from Kansas, I would be asked about Nestor. He had many, many friends in many places. He was a giant in the real estate industry and made a huge difference in people’s lives. Not only was he an expert in real estate, he was also a leader in the Wichita community and understood the people of Kansas. I enjoyed many conversations with Nestor over breakfast and lunch and greatly benefited from his wisdom. He will be sorely missed in the Wichita community, and Robba and I are praying for his friends and family.”
