Jack Fiman, an entertainment industry executive, died Nov. 17 in Atlanta after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage. He was 49.

A native of St. Louis, Fiman attended the U. of Missouri, and at age 23 became an account executive for the ABC affiliate in Chicago.

He then relocated to Los Angeles, where he created and oversaw advertising and marketing campaigns for Martin & Benedict, a media buying and advertising firm with clients including Warner Bros., Atlantic Releasing, Transworld Films and Lorimar.

Between 1980 and 1985, Fiman was the executive in charge of production for several Jane Fonda workout videos.

From 1990-94, Fiman served as senior executive vice president of marketing for Cannon Pictures.

Three years ago, Fiman and his family relocated to Atlanta.
