Alexa Valiente, ABC news producer, died Friday 5th April, 2019 at the age of 27. How she died is sketchy at the moment but ABC news says Alexa had been having health issues for months.
Valiente is survived by her parents, Mante and Connie, her sister Jessica, and brother Justin.
The sad news about Alexa Valiente death came as a rude shock to her colleagues in the newsroom.
At work, Alexa was described as a co-worker who always asked how a colleague was doing before talking about herself, a smart and tenacious journalist, a thoughtful and attentive friend, and an adventurous traveler.
Read what James Goldston, president of ABC News had to say about Alexa:
She was known for her infectious laugh and one of a kind personality that stretched far beyond the walls the newsroom.
Always a friendly face in the halls, she had an upbeat spirit, a curious and brilliant mind and a real passion to see the world. She will be deeply missed.
What Katie Nelson, executive producer for ABC News Content, said about Valiente:
“Fierce, funny and adventurous, that girl was a force who could light up a room.”
What Allie Yang, an associate producer who worked with Valiente, said about her:
“Every Friday afternoon, with just enough people still in the office to enjoy it, Alexa would treat the staff to ‘Flashback Friday’ — a weekly jam session at her desk where she’d play classics from Backstreet Boys, Usher, and Britney Spears to sing and dance along to.
“She was lovingly referred to as ‘DJ Lexi Lex on the Dex.'”
Valiente’s journey as Abc news producer:
Alexa started her journey at Abc news as an intern. She was on the digital show integration team. Her work spanned across different sections of the ABC News operation, including Nightline, 20/20 and Popcorn with Peter Travers.
Valiente won her first Emmy in 2018 for her work on the “20/20” story “Las Vegas: Heartbreak and Heroes.”
Valiente shared all aspects of her life, from videos of her hip hop dance routines to photos of her impressively stylish wardrobe.
Valiente traveled frequently, too, taking her to different corners of the world, at times on a monthly basis at the drop of a dime.
Valiente graduated from Seton Hall University with a degree in diplomacy and international relations, a fitting degree for the avid traveler she became.
Valiente was part of a leadership program at ABC News, mentored by Barbara Fedida, senior vice president for talent, editorial strategy and business affairs.
She was selected to participate in the Asian American Journalists Association executive leadership program this month.
May her soul rest in perfect peace.
