Jerald Arthur Wright, 31, worked on Mainstreet USA at Disney.

Jerald Arthur Wright, 31, was an employee of Walt Disney World who enjoyed the “magical moments” of helping others with his theme park family.

Wright worked most recently in merchandising on Main Street USA and previously Tomorrowland, another area of the Magic Kingdom.

Wright was a Miami Heat fan and attended Florida International University, according to his Facebook page.

He wrote about “magical moments” he often had with guests while working at Magic Kingdom, including once he gifted a Disney magic band for a 90-year-old woman on her birthday.

“What I learned today was not to take the little things (for) granted but to be thankful all you have and share a magical moments with someone special,” Wright wrote on Facebook.

Wright went to the Pulse nightclub to celebrate his friend Cory James Connell's 21st birthday. Both men were killed in the June 12, 2016 shooting.

"Jerry was a great guy to work with,” a former coworker said. “He was quiet but really wonderful with all the guests. He always had a smile on his face."

Wright’s memorial page is filled with comments about his glowing personality.

“Jerry was the type of guy who always made you laugh and smile even when you were having a good or bad day,” Christina Osmon, of Apopka wrote.
