“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.

“My sincere condolences to Jackie’s family, staff, and community back home and to the families of her staffers, Emma and Zach.”
