In Loving Memory of Jane Henson by Jesse Oliver
We'll Miss You Jane.
Chris Stulz - This is a collage to Jane Henson I made for Muppet Stuff. When searching for images to pay her tribute, I couldn't decide which photo I liked best. I mean she was right there, literally hands on, through so much of the Muppets history and I wanted to show how much she loved her family both flesh and felt. The original Kermit is holding a photo of Steve Whitmire and Jane to show the significance of Jane's recommendation to hire Steve and his then later taking over of Kermit after Jim's passing.The bottom images are a timeline of events from Jim and Jane's wedding, to the start of their family, and culminating in the picture on the right with all her children and grandchildren. The other images are spread out similar to the way reference images might be used in the workshop. The scissors and string are meant to convey the work she did behind and under the scenes, both in the making of earliest Muppets and continuing today to keep Jim's vision alive with the Jim Henson Legacy.
Mitchell Stein - Although she is not as big of a name as say, Jerry Nelson, Jane still had a big part in the creation of the Muppets. Jane did many great things in her life. She co-founded the creation of the Muppets alongside Jim, and even founded the Jim Henson Legacy, shortly after Jim's death. If not for Jane, we might not even know the Muppets as we do now. Jane was a very important part in the Muppets and standing alongside Jim all those years.
Jane was a beautiful, kind-hearted person throughout her life. She will be sorely missed. My condolences to the entire family. Rest in peace Jane.
