Made in the USA Gluten Free Paraben Free www.RCMAmakeup.com by the same director as Riders of the Purple Sage, Charles Haid, who went as far as offering Jeffrey a cameo on the show in his infamous drag character. He was a friend and mentor and I will be forever grateful that he came to help me out on some shows as well." Journeyman make-up artist John Damiani worked with Jeffrey for many years: "I met Jeffrey Sacino & Richard Arias at Naime's years ago before teaming up with him profession- ally, To know Jeffrey, one got to know Mildred (aka his alter ego). She appeared once on High Incident being handcuffed and arrested. Jeffrey would send out Xmas cards as her. It was such a holiday delight and very amusing to receive it with Mildred decked out for the holiday with her two-foot-high beehive hair style. Jeffrey was always there to give advice and help with the craft. He could take a rat's nest wig and turn it into a work of art. Jeffrey lived, breathed and embodied hair styling with a bold, strong and amusing spirit. Working with Jeffrey for a good 10 years, the majority on West Wing, we became friends and had many great laughs." Brother Sacino was nominated for an Emmy in 1991 for Lucy & Desi: Before the Laughter. He was also nominated for a MUAHS Guild Award in 2001 for The West Wing with John Damiani as his make-up partner. His credits include Tales of the City (one of many projects with actress Laura Linney), Milk Money, Cobb, Ally McBeal, Pollock, Kinsey, and Away We Go. He is survived by his partner Ruben Rosales.
