Amber Zapatka, 27, of Lowell, Mass., died in a motorcycle accident on July 24 or 25 in Hudson, Mass.
Zapatka was a project engineer at Nypro Inc., and she was featured in a recent video that promoted careers in mold making.
“She was known for her great sense of humor, love of life, expertise in plastics and molding, and her willingness to take on anything. She loved what she did and everyone knew her. There is a lot of sadness around here,” said Al Cotton, spokesman for the Clinton, Mass.-based molder.
Zapatka was one of five young Nypro employees who were featured in the “Moldmaking Matters” video put together by Moldmaking Technology magazine. The video is available on YouTube.
Cotton said the video was introduced at NPE 2015 and will be shown at schools across the country this fall.
Zapatka appears in the video starting at about the 3:16 mark.
