Disney Legend Jack Lindquist Passes Away at Age 88

Sad news to report today.  Jack Lindquist, one of the most influential leaders at Disney, has passed away.

Seen here, Lindquist stands in front of a small mock up of the Mexico pavilion’s tableaux. The pyramid and backdrop planned for World Showcase would eventually grow to be 220 feet long, complete with an erupting volcano, towering above the Yucatan wilderness. Jack Lindquist, though the Senior Vice President of Marketing was formally in charge of World Showcase Promotion and can be attributed with finalizing many of the agreements between Disney and the respective nations to be exhibited in EPCOT Center.

  1. Rest in peace Jack, we will miss your amazing talents. Fans of Jack’s work may want to know that there is a secret reference to him in Disneyland. Look for the “Jack” o’Lantern made in his image, wearing his iconic glasses, which can be found just outside Goofy’s Playhouse in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland.
