    April 28, 2007

    Erica Deana Cassetti, a former animator for Walt Disney Feature Animation, died at her home in Chandler, Arizona, on April 21, 2007, reports THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC. She was 35 years old.

    Cassetti was born Nov.18, 1971, in Houston, Texas, and went to CalArts. She began her career at Rhythm & Hues on the first Coca-Cola polar bear commercial. She followed that with a nine year career at Disney, working on such films as THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, HERCULES, TARZAN and ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE. She left Disney to work on DreamWorks' SINBAD: LEGEND OF THE SEVEN SEAS.

    No viewing will be held. A memorial service will take place at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road, Chandler, Arizona, on April 30, 2007, at 10:00 am. Her family requests that in lieu of flowers donations in her memory should be made to Risen Savior Lutheran Church.

    Based on the wording, it seems pretty obvious that the above information is all that she/and or her family wanted released.

    Condolences to them and I'm thankful for her contributions to us all.

    So young and so talented. So sad. I didn't realize she lived in Chandler. I grew up there and now only live about 10 miles from where her funeral will be. My condolences to her family. Our prayers are with you.

    I guess you just never know what life will bring. 35, so darn young and with so much talent!
