Universal Orlando mourns loss of community relations executive
Written by Robert Niles
Universal Orlando is mourning the loss of its vice president for community relations, Jan Stratton, who died Sunday. Stratton was 54.Tweet
"Jan was a woman of enormous heart. She had a great passion for helping the families of our community," Universal Orlando spokesman Tom Schroder said in a statement. As community relations director for the resort, Stratton was in charge of working with local charities and community events. She was also charged with maintaining and strengthening Universal Orlando's relationships with local racial and ethnic minority communities.
Stratton died Sunday after being removed from life support, one day after a reported suicide attempt at her home. The Orlando Sentinel has collected several quotes from area organizations that Stratton served during her careers with Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World, including Give Kids the World and the Second Harvest food bank.
