Description

Background
Eric Jazmen was a designer who lived with AIDS-related dementia; he made a film (I Still Am) about his condition, and continued to advocate for the destigmatization of dementia as his illness advanced. He founded an organization called Articulations to further this work. Before his health declined, he had designed window displays for stores; he also won the 1987 Bare Chest Contest at the San Francisco Eagle bar. He is survived by his partner, William Eddelman, a theatre professor at Stanford.
