By Chris Ariens 

Among the 49 people murdered at Pulse nightclub early Sunday morning was 24-year-old Jonathan Antonio Camuy Vega. Camuy Vega worked on the Telemundo show La Voz Kids, which is produced in Orlando.

“We want to extend our thoughts, prayers and deepest condolences to Jonathan’s family and friends,” said Cesar Conde, Chairman of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises. “He was a great assistant producer and had been working with us since Yo Soy el Artista and previously at Telemundo Puerto Rico. Most recently, he was working in audience management in the current season of La Voz Kids. Jonathan will be missed dearly.”

Camuy Vega was also a member of NAHJ, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. “The NAHJ familia is heartbroken and offers our condolences to Jonathan’s family in Florida and Puerto Rico,” wrote NAHJ president and KNBC reporter Mekahlo Medina.

Another NBCUniversal employee, Luis Vielma, was also killed in the terrorist attack. Vielma worked at Universal Studios’ Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Author J.K. Rowling tweeted her grief at Vielma’s death:

The city of Orlando has now released 47 of the 49 names of those killed. They range in age from 19 to 50. The average age of those killed: 28.
