Meet Kim Weitsman, Adam Weitsman Wife
Kim Weitsman and Adam Weitsman first met in the summer of 2000. At the time, Kim, who worked as a fashion model in New York, was visiting her father, an executive who was opening department stores near Owego. As for Adam, a friend of his who ran a Binghamton health club told him a woman was coming to the club whom he had to meet.
But on their first date, Adam confessed to Kim he was going to prison and asked her if she’d still want to see him. “What’d you do?” she asked. “Would you do it again?”
Four years later, Kim then him to Otisville Federal Prison, abandoning modeling for a career in scrap metal. Thereafter, Adam closed the bar and clothing store and sold his real estate. The shredder was running and income was up. On the other hand, Kim studied the business and learned more about metals — scrap materials, customers, contacts, and debt payments — from her incarcerated boyfriend.
After Adam was released, the two then tied to knot in 2006 and moved to an early 20th-century home in Skaneateles, NYC the next year.
Fast forward to 2023, Kim and Adam are happier than ever.
Adam Weitsman is a local entrepreneur and philanthropist born and raised in Owego, NY. After graduating from Long Island University, he opened his own art gallery in New York City and later returned home in 1995 to help run his father’s family-owned business.
Sadly, in 2004, he was sentenced for check kiting, paid a $1 million fine, and served 8 months in prison. “You’d think by doing things the gray way you’d make more money,” he said. “Karma takes all of that away. I think I would have lost the company if I didn’t get arrested.”
Do Adam And Kim Weitsman Have Kids?
Yes, Kim and Adam Weitsman share three kids — Clover, Monroe, and Rae.
Their daughter, Clover turned 13 in June 2022. She is a daddy’s girl who often graces Adam’s socials. “My best friend and biggest supporter, my daughter Clover. God was definitely looking out for me when he brought you into my life. So proud of you for being the most polite, kind, and giving young lady you have turned out to be,” the billionaire dedicated an IG post to her.
You might have also seen Clover once interviewing Donald Trump in August 2021. At the time, she asked him what advice he would give her father “on raising my sisters and I?” To which, the former president replied, “I have five children. From the day that they were old enough to speak, I said no drugs, no alcohol, no cigarettes.”

Kim Weitsman Job
Kim Weitsman co-owned The Krebs with Adam. The two purchased the historic restaurant back in 2010, for $1 million, and undertook a 4-year-renovation project with a refreshing and generous vision — which cost them about $4 million. They also hired a rising young New York City chef, Austin Johnson, updated the menu, and opened the restaurant Thursdays to Saturdays for dinner and Sundays for brunch all year.
Motivated by a philanthropic desire, they then transformed The Krebs into a charitable institution.
Since its grand reopening, Adam and Kim have donated the restaurant’s profits to in-need individuals and organizations — the Rescue Mission, the American Red Cross, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Syracuse, the Food Bank of CNY, Make-A-Wish CNY, and the Skaneateles Ecumenical Food Pantry — throughout Upstate NY.
Reportedly, just in 2014, The Krebs donated a total of $82,450 to local charities
In 2016, the duo also planning to open a new restaurant serving traditional Mexican cuisine down the street from The Krebs. The plan was to convert the building at 9 E. Genesee St into The Elephant and The Dove, a restaurant named for Mexican artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. This restaurant will then receive donations from The Krebs until it’s self-sustainable.
The last we checked, Kim and her husband were expected to pay about $800,000 for the building and another $600,000 to renovate it into The Elephant and The Dove.
But The Krebs wasn’t the only charitable organization, the couple was invested in. They also often attended fundraisers and made significant donations.
