Humberto Nagera, MD

Sadly, I have to announce that Humberto Nagera M.D., world renowned psychoanalyst/psychiatrist, died peacefully on November 7 in Tampa, Florida, following complications relating to congestive heart failure.  He was 89 years old and still working as the Director of The Carter-Jenkins Center.

Being an exemplary clinician, teacher, supervisor, scholar and organizational leader, Dr. Nagera influenced careers and touched the lives of many who had the honor of working with or knowing him.

His surviving children, Lisette Nagera and Humberto Phillip Nagera, request that in lieu of flowers anyone wishing to express condolences make a donation to The Carter-Jenkins Center or a charity of their choice in Dr. Nagera’s name.  No formal services will be held.  Sympathy cards should be addressed to The Carter-Jenkins Center.  Those who would like to share condolences, memories or comments may do so in the comments below, or via email to  The replies may be shared on the “In Memoriam” web page being created at The Carter-Jenkins Center.

  2. I had the privilege of working with Dr. Nagera at USF; he was a very passionate and caring physician and had much to offer those that would listen. He contributed much to the university, the Carter Jenkins Center and the community around him, as well as peers & colleagues near and far. He definitely made an impact on this world and he will be greatly missed. However, those of us that knew him find comfort in knowing that he has touched the lives of many.

  3. Dr. Nagera was a kind, compassionate man. He was brilliant and contributed care to many who suffered. He was uplifted my family during one of my MOST difficult life crises.
