It’s with great sadness that we report Cartoon Network SVP of programming and scheduling Jennifer Davidson unexpectedly passed away early Saturday morning, December 1.

The 38-year-old died of a sudden illness and is survived by her husband John and three children Mitchell (seven), Oliver (five) and Harper (two).

Davidson had been with CN since its early days, joining the net when it launched in 1992. Over the years she served as VP of marketing, ad trade, consumer products trade and strategic operations for CN and its Adult Swim block.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made in Davidson’s name to one of three charities: FRAXA, the Fragile X Reseach Foundation (www.fraxa.org), the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (www.leukemia-lymphoma.org), and BrightPoint for Children (www.brightpointforchildren.org). A memorial service for Davidson will be held on December 5 at 1 p.m. at Buckhead Church in Atlanta, Georgia.
