In 1953, Joerger was handpicked by Walt Disney, to create models for Disneyland's development and construction. Joerger, along with Wathel Rogers and Harriet Burns, were personally selected by Disney to head the model shop that would shape Disneyland. The master model maker helped create Disneyland's overall look, by creating three-dimensional renderings of Disney attractions and through his mastery of forced perspective.
Imagineering's resident rock expert, Joerger had an uncanny ability to create convincing faux rocks out of plaster or cement. His realistic rockwork enhances attractions like the Jungle Cruise, Tom Sawyer Island, Pirates of the Caribbean, Submarine Voyage and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
Disney Legend, Fred Joerger died on August 26, 2005 in Woodland Hills, California.
