Robert Enrietto

Educator and production pro

Robert F. Enrietto Jr., educator and production pro, died Dec. 27 of a heart attack in Chicago. He was 62.

A Chicago native, Enrietto worked as production manager and assistant director before becoming the creator of Columbia College’s Semester in L.A. program.

A Columbia alum, he believed the college should have a presence in Hollywood and helped develop the program at CBS Studio Center, which included classes in screenwriting and animation.

He is survived by his mother and sister.
