Renowned late jazz saxophonist Stan Getz unfortunately died in 1991 at 64 after an ongoing battle with liver cancer. Now, the woman he was engaged to upon his death has filed a petition asking the trustee of the trust, established on her behalf, be removed. Actress Samantha Cesena, according to My News L.A., filed the petition last Wednesday, Jan. 28, in Los Angeles Superior Court against Marvin Zolt. Getz executed his will in April 1991 and established the Samantha Trust for the benefit of his then-fiancee.
