As a native Fort Worthian who grew up visiting the Fort Worth Zoo, Alexis knew it was a special, cherished place in the community, where families gathered to make memories. And just as Alexis cherished her own family, she enthusiastically poured herself into the Zoo as well. Since 2008, she proudly shared stories of the magic of the Fort Worth Zoo – the animals, zookeepers, staff and conservation efforts – with the community as the Communications Director.
As much as she loved the animals here at the Zoo, it was the people who meant the most to her – the families who visited the park, the staff who kept the park in motion and her coworkers who worked alongside her, both past and present. A leader and mentor to those in her department, and a friendly face and beloved colleague to all, Alexis brought the Zoo to life in so many ways and to so many of us who work here.
Alexis will be dearly missed by all of us here at the Zoo. The Wilson Family will be notified of your contribution to the Fort Worth Zoo.
