August 03, 2022

Ways and Means Republican Leader Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) issued the following statement on the tragic passing of Ways and Means Worker and Family Support Subcommittee Republican Leader Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN):

“God took a special angel home today. Congresswoman Jackie Walorski was a happy Hoosier who would light up the room with her joy, passion, brilliance, and love of life. Her Midwestern values of hard work, fairness, and kindness were a model for members. There was nothing she couldn’t do: She was a tough, fearless advocate for her district, and she was a champion of vulnerable children and families as leader of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Worker and Family Support. Cathy and I, along with the entire Ways and Means team of members and staff, extend our deepest condolences to her husband Dean, the Walorski family, as well as to the families of her staffers, Emma Thomson and Zachery Potts.”
