Rep. Deutch Statement on Loss of Rep. Jackie Walorski
Today, U.S. Representative Ted Deutch (FL-22), Chair of the House Committee on Ethics and co-Chair of the Congressional Study Group on Germany, issued this statement following the sudden death of U.S. Representative Jackie Walorski (IN-2):
“This is a devastating and shocking loss. Jackie served with distinction as Ranking Member of the Ethics Committee. I was proud to serve alongside her on Committee and to work closely with her on the Congressional Study Group on Germany. I valued her insights and appreciated her leadership.
“As partisan as Congress has become, it is still a family, and this loss hits close to home. Jackie Walorski was a colleague and a friend. She cared deeply about the House and about her constituents, and she will be dearly missed by all of us.
“My sincere condolences to Jackie’s family, staff, and community back home and to the families of her staffers, Emma and Zach.”
