Jeffrey Weiss, the energy reporter at the Dallas Morning News who wrote for the paper about his brain cancer diagnosis, died Wednesday at the age of 62.

Michael Granberry of the Morning News writes, “”Jeff was a perpetual student who brought a sense of wonder to every story he covered, including the story of his own terminal illness,’ said Mike Wilson, editor of The News. ‘People will say he was brave, and he was, but more than anything he was curious. His fascination with just about everything was his greatest gift to his readers and to us.

“‘He was a good reporter and a good man and we’ll miss him terribly.’

“In August, Weiss received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Religion News Association. Religion was one of several beats he covered during his tenure with The News. Others included education and energy.”
