Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Rest in Peace

My thoughts go out to the family of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones. Tubbs, who represented Cleveland, Ohio, passed away yesterday at the age of 58 from a cerebral aneurysm.

Tubbs is known by many for her lively support of Senator Hillary Clinton during the Democratic presidential primary.

But there is much more to her story than that. She is a true model for African Americans, and African American women in particular. She was a lawyer, a prosecutor, and a judge, in addition to being a community activist. She will be missed.

  1. I think Tubbs’ professional achievement and public service speaks for itself, in terms of being role model behavior. I think any parent would be proud to see their child accomplish what she did.
