It is with profound sadness that we mourn the January passing of Mina Hurtado, Edlen’s Director of Event Services at the Los Angeles Convention Center. During Mina’s career with Edlen, she had the opportunity to work on many high-profile events in Los Angeles such as Anime Expo, the Grammy Awards and KCON to name a few. Mina was greatly respected by her co-workers and the clients she worked with during her nearly nine years with Edlen.

Matt Shimer, Edlen’s electrical general foreman in Los Angeles worked closely with Mina. The last six years, Matt and Mina worked side-by-side with which enabled them to develop a familial bond. Matt said “Mina was the sparkly personality that greeted all of our partners here in L.A. We made each other cry from how often and hard we laughed together.”

Mina was a dedicated Dodgers fan, and adored her cats, Darla and Alfalfa, and is survived by her parents and sister.

Edlen CEO Jim Wetterling said, “We all miss Mina’s beautiful smile and infectious laugh. We were so very sorry to hear of her passing and extend our sincere condolences to her family.”
