Memorial service set for expert on LV housing market

A memorial service for Nasser Daneshvary, late director of the Lied Institute for Real Estate Studies, is planned for Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. at UNLV's Tam Alumni Center.

Daneshvary died Aug. 18 at his home of what appeared to be a heart attack. He was 62.

A prolific researcher, Daneshvary was widely regarded as a leading expert on the housing market and foreclosure crisis and was frequently quoted in the Las Vegas Review-Journal and national media.

He came to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 1990 as an assistant professor of economics and was appointed chair of the economics department. He was interim chair of the management department, associate dean and associate vice provost for academic resources.

As an administrator, he oversaw develop­ment of a major in international business, the executive master's degree in business administration and dual master's degrees in business programs with the law and dental schools.

He is survived by his wife, Rennae, associate director of research and administration for the Center for Business and Economic Research at UNLV, and his son, Arash Vasegh-Daneshvary.

Parking will be available for off-campus visitors.
