2018

Veteran VES member, Emmy winner and co-founder of fxguide, Jeff Heusser, passed away in July. He was a caring husband, brother, uncle and friend to many. To the very end, Jeff was funny, kind, and caring for and about others more than himself. We celebrate his life, his selflessness, and the impact he had on all of us who knew him and those who he touched all around the world. Jeff started in the industry at public television station WCET in Cincinnati, Ohio where he worked in almost every production job before moving up to producing and directing. His next stop was WLWT where he directed the news and other live and taped shows. He also won several Emmys for his work there. He then got into post production, first at Instant Replay in Cincinnati, then at Charlex in New York, Editel in Chicago and then on to Los Angeles. In L.A., he worked at CIS, The Post Group, Sol Designfx, and Digital Domain (among others) working on commercials, feature films and television shows. Jeff founded fxguide in 1999 with John Montgomery, and Mike Seymour. Jeff will be fondly remembered and sorely missed.
