Mark Jollie was a singer, dancer, music teacher, and later financial administrator of the New York City Opera.

Mark Jollie, the financial administrator of the New York City Opera since 1987, died on September 9, 1993, at the New York University Medical Center. He was 41 years old and lived in Manhattan.

Susan Woelzl, the spokeswoman for the New York City Opera, said that the cause was AIDS.

For the four years before he joined City Opera, he was an administrative assistant to John Crosby, the general director of the Santa Fe Opera. In the mid-1970's, Mr. Jollie taught music at Parsippany High School in New Jersey.
