Hi Julia,
Typically, I do agree with your view. Even if "name is the same" applies to the spouse. 
IMO, what is the same:
What is not the same
  • his birth year on his marriage is 2 years later than both the census and death record
  • his birth location on his death record is different than both the marriage and census, 3 miles different
For me, especially as the death record is the only one Jonasz did not personally report, being dead, is the one leas likely to indicate it is a different person. 
I would add, a search on JewishGen for another Jonasz Weinstock married to a Roza Benjamin, does not produce any results. 
I am comfortable with the amount of evidence making it likely this is Jonasz's death place. What would really help is if I could locate his tombstone in one of the Oradae (Nagyvarad) cemeteries, and see that it has his father's name of Izak on it. 
Thank you for sharing your thoughts,
