He was the nephew of Phyllis King Weiner and Drs. Gail and Robert Wilensky. Greg attended Primary Day School in Bethesda, MD; Potomac School in McLean, VA; Landon School in Bethesda, MD and Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, MD. Greg received a B.A. in History, Japanese and Political Science from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI, where he was Vice President of Delta Kappa Epsilon, a member of Michigan's Sailing Team and was on the Dean's List. Greg received a M.A. in Japanese and a J.D., with honors, from Washington University in St. Louis, MO. He earned first place honors twice in the Phillip C. Jessep International Moot Court Competition; received first place honors in the Negotiation Competition, Client Counseling Competition and won The International Academy of Trial Lawyer's Award. He was elected to Law Review as Articles Editor and served as Law Clerk to Professor Gordon H. Hylton.

Greg spoke fluent Japanese and earned a black belt in karate as a teenager. He loved: dogs (especially his late Doberman Jalen), playing the piano, technology and chocolate ice cream. He was an avid fan of his beloved Michigan Wolverines...Go Blue. But far above all academic, professional and personal achievements, Greg was an extremely generous and exquisitely kind man. He was always helpful, without being asked, to brothers, parents, friends, animals and those in need. Greg would never harm a living creature and was deeply spiritual. He had a wickedly dry sense of humor and an infectious laugh. But most of all, he dearly loved his wonderful wife Enna and was passionately dedicated to his most precious son Noah whom he said he couldn't love more under any circumstances. He will be missed far beyond the ability any words have to express our loss. The world will shine so much less brightly without him here. Rest in peace our dearest one.
