Stan Winston was the live-action dinosaur technician for Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III and was going to be the visual effects supervisor for Jurassic World. Jurassic Park III was also his last film he helped with before his death.


Winston died on June 15, 2008 at the age of 62, at his home in Malibu, California after suffering for seven years from multiple myeloma. Arnold Schwarzenegger made a public speech about his death. Winston was survived by his wife and two children, actor Matt Winston and Debbie Winston.

Even though Stan Winston passed away before the production of Jurassic World, Legacy Effects (formally Stan Winston Studios) helped make the animatronics for the movie. In the film, Winston's Steakhouse was named after him.
