Kenneth Jessell was the interim president and was advanced as the lone candidate for the post.

MIAMI — Florida International University Board of Trustees Monday selected Kenneth Jessell, the interim president, as the university’s next president with a compensation package of nearly $1 million.

“I’m very emotional,” said Jessell, 67, right after he got picked. “It’s a little bittersweet because I lost my mother on Friday.”

The FIU Board of Trustees unanimously voted to name Jessell as FIU’s sixth president. They also signed off on an annual base salary of $650,000 and a performance-based bonus of $175,000. His total compensation package came out to $996,081, just under a million, despite some opposition from two trustees.
