Posted on by Karina

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the passing of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones:

Today we mourn the death of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, even as we fondly recall her life and accomplishments. Her passing comes as a shock, but we can take solace in her fulfilling life of service to the people of Ohio and of our nation.

Stephanie Tubbs Jones distinguished herself as a judge, a prosecutor, and one of Cleveland's African-American leaders. For nearly ten years, I've been proud to serve beside her in the House of Representatives. She was a respected Member of Congress who represented her constituents with passion and dedication. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
