The Roundtable Mourns the Loss of Esteemed Arts Ed Colleague Jessica Wilt

Reading Time:   2 Mins

The Roundtable community is saddened to learn that Program Committee member and a former Roundtable board member Jessica Wilt recently lost her 18-month battle with bone cancer.

Jessica believed strongly in the Roundtable’s mission. Her professional expertise and boundless energy truly helped to advance our organization over the many years of her involvement. When Jessica got sick, she chronicled her treatment on social media with characteristic good humor. Even after Jessica left New York for treatment in her home state of Ohio, she remained active in Roundtable affairs. She collaborated with us on #ArtsEdTech events at Apple SoHo and advised us on all manner of social media and tech-y topics. Jessica was vibrant and tenacious, opinionated and funny. She will be missed.
