There are people who mark the series. Either because they have a direct participation or because of the contribution they make. That’s even if they don’t appear on camera. Well, that’s exactly what happened to a legendary Simpsons character. This is because she worked on the 735 episodes of this series. She has also worked in other productions and TV specials. However, he felt a direct connection with this series.
A legendary Simpsons character has died!
The person in question had been working on the series since its first episode in 1989 and only left it in 2022 to take care of his health. She was 64 years old.

This person’s connection with the series was so great that he even created a blog entirely dedicated to her. In one of the publications celebrating the show’s 30th year on the air, Ledesma provided fans with a timeline of The Simpsons history, starting with its beginnings as a newspaper comic strip that original creator Matt Groening adapted into an animated short film on The Tracey Ullman Show before the show was canceled and expanded into its own 30-minute series. Chris Ledesma then detailed his own connection to these events and the love he had in his heart for all the characters on the show.
Working on The Simpsons was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and Chris Ledesma was often asked what it was like. In 2013, he was interviewed by SAE Institute USA and gave viewers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the music publishing process. “We sat down and mapped out where all the music in all the scenes goes and what the motivation is,” he said. “The composer dreams up the music, and I’m the technician who makes sure it fits the picture the way we discussed it.”
The music editor’s death came to the attention of fans when they saw the tribute card at the end of the episode broadcast this Sunday in the United States.
Since then, there has been an outpouring of love on social media, with fans and colleagues alike honoring him with kind words.
