Jay Scheimer played many voices in Filmation cartoons, including at times Fat Albert's mother and Queen Marlena in He-Man. Additionally, she was Lou's wife for 56 years. The two met while Lou was at Carnegie Tech, and he told her on the first night they met that he was going to marry her. Three-and-a-half years later, they were married on December 20, 1953. They moved to California in 1955, and Lou started working in animation shortly thereafter. Jay has been by his side ever since, until today.
Email condolences may be sent to Lou at firstname.lastname@example.org

Dear Friends and Loved Ones:
For those of you who may not yet know, Jay Scheimer passed away late last night at Tarzana Medical Center. Please forgive the email notice, but this proves to be the most expedient method of letting you all know.
The Scheimer family respectfully asks that in lieu of flowers etc that any donations in honor of Jay be made to the National Parkinson Foundation. For your convenience, here is a link to their web site page.
