From memories of the prof. M. Moldabekov « I can't remember a single case when he, being the rector of KazNU, refused to employ such graduates at the university. On the contrary, he met them with fatherly concern, found time for a personal conversation, and assess their preparation and potential».

«... Yes, I'm well acknowledged with professor U.A.Joldasbekov since the '60s, when I was a student of construction-engineering faculty in Kazakh Polytechnic Institute, he was a vice-rector in it. As our experience grew, we noticed his teaching and leadership qualities, especially when he was in the position of rector of KazNU. The university managed to accomplish into the top list of the country. As a builder myself, campus warms my heart»
(From a speech during the election campaign of U. A. Joldasbekov in 1990)
Of course, he loved his wife Maya Mikhailovna, with whom he met at the dawn of his youth and tied his fate in difficult years of deprivation, with a special love. After leaving school, the roads of the previously inseparable lovers parted: Umirbek went to study in Moscow, Maya went to Leningrad. Until his arrival at a new place, the savvy and active Umirbek successfully solves the problem that has arisen: he persistently intercedes with the leadership of the university and still seeks that Maya, who studied at the Leningrad State University, be transferred to the philological faculty of Moscow State University. From those days until the last minutes of his life, Umirbek Agha, in every sense, carried in his arms his dearly beloved wife, the unforgettable Maya Mikhailovna. A son was born in love - Skanderbek (1955-2016). Daughters - Bayan, Gaukhar.
