In Memoriam: Ruby and Hart Campbell

June 30, 2019

Our thoughts and love go out to Gail Lerner and Colin Campbell at the loss of their two children, Hart 14 and Ruby 17, in a brutal car crash with a drunk driver, outside of Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 12th. Gail and Colin are both '96 graduates from the Theatre Program, Directing Concentration of the School of the Arts, and soon after graduation, married. Gail is an Emmy nominated producer and writer for television including Will and Grace and Black-ish. Colin is an award-winning film director, writer and producer who also teaches at Cal Poly Pomona and Chapman University. They share an Oscar nomination as well. We send our deepest condolences and hold them in our hearts as they navigate this devastating loss.

Donations in Ruby and Hart’s honor can be made to The Trevor Project, an organization dedicated to creating safe space and resources for LGBTQ teens.

Letters of condolence and reflections and memories may be submitted to [email protected]. They will be gathered into one large document to be shared with Gail and Colin.
