Stephanie Tubbs Jones Gone but not Forgotten

In the halls of Congress there will be one less voice. One of the brightest stars of the Democratic Party has been silenced with her recent passing. She was only 58, her charisma and zeal for the job she was elected to do will be missed by many people that needed her voice.

In the course of our lives we all need a person willing to stand up strong for those that can not. Stephanie Tubbs Jones did that in the halls of Congress at every opportunity that presented itself. She didn’t have to, but she wanted to. She is the example of being the better person and offering a hand of help to those less successful in life. Her presence in the Democratic Party was noticeable on her many appearances on the talking heads news reporting shows in the main stream media and that absence going forward is a great loss not to just the people of Ohio but the nation.

My personal thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends, and all of the people she so much loved in Ohio. Stephanie Tubbs Jones was a class act that will be missed deeply.

She was so exciting to listen to and enthusiastic about every aspect of her work. It doesn't seem possible that she's passed. What a terrible loss for her family and her constituents.

We can only hope that the 11th district in Ohio can find a voice as charasmatic as hers on the behalf of the people.
