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.

In lieu of flowers, family suggests donations to the Jack Fiman Memorial Fund at Paideia School, 1509 Ponce de Leon Ave., Atlanta, GA 30307.
