James Wieden, was an Agricultural Teacher at the Preston School of Industry in Ione, California. On the day of December 2, 1965 he was brutally attacked by two wards, William Dunlap and Robert Stalcup. The boys stole his vehicle and wallet and were later apprehended in Southern California where they were tried as adults for James' murder.

Although he passed away from his injuries, he did not die at Preston as many people claim. He was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries several days later (December 5th).

He was survived by his wife Edmee Wieden.

Funeral Services were held at the Lodi Funeral Home, Elders S.S. Rutan and Ivan Kurtz presided over the services and burial took place at Cherokee Memorial Park in Lodi.

The high school at the Preston School of Industry was named after James Wieden in honor of the memory of their fallen instructor.
