Aug 21 | by Natasha
In even more sad news today, Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones of Ohio passed away just minutes ago in an East Cleveland hospital. She suffered a brain aneurysm while driving yesterday and was admitted to the hospital for care. And just shortly ago, brain hemorrhaging caused her death. While reports earlier today incorrectly reported she had died, it is now official as it has been reported by the hospital and her family. According to the official statement from the East Cleveland hospital and Tubbs family: Tubbs Jones, 58, died at 6:12 p.m. after suffering a brain hemorrhage that caused an aneurysm that burst and left her with limited brain function, spokeswoman Eileen Sheil said "Throughout the course of the day and into this evening, Congresswoman Tubbs Jones' medical condition declined," Sheil said in a statement from the clinic and Tubbs Jones' family. She was a widow and leaves behind one son. Congresswoman Tubbs Jones was the first black woman to ever represent the state of Ohio in Congress, she held super-delegate status at the Democratic National Convention. Tubbs Jones, 58, served as a Cuyahoga County judge and prosecutor before becoming a U/S/ Representative. She has served five terms in Congress and was expected to easily win her sixth in November. She was also an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and was one of the greatest leaders in our political system. She was also one of my personal inspirations as a leader and as my Soror. Definitely sad news for everyone. R.I.P. Ms. Jones.
