Rep. Tubbs Jones Dies After Brain Hemorrhage

Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D-Ohio) died in a Cleveland hospital this evening after having suffered a brain hemorrhage Tuesday night, according to The Associated Press and a statement issued by Huron Hospital and her family.

"Throughout the course of the day and into this evening, Congresswoman Tubbs Jones' medical condition declined. Medical doctors and neurosurgeons from Huron Hospital and Cleveland Clinic sadly report that at 6:12 p.m. Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones died," the statement said.

Tubbs Jones was 58 and had served in the House since 1998, representing East Cleveland and the city's suburbs. She was the first black woman to represent Ohio in Congress, and she had been chairwoman of the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct.

As Capitol Briefing wrote earlier today, Tubbs Jones's condition had been the subject of some confusion throughout the day, with Capitol Briefing and other news outlets erroneously reporting her death early this afternoon.

Here's a statement from House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), a former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus:

"I was stunned by the news today of the passing of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones. There is a great gap where she stood on behalf of affordable health care, women's issues, access to quality education and fairness in voting.

"Whether you were a presidential candidate, a colleague debating on the floor or a friend passing time, you wanted her on your team for her quick legal mind, tenacious debating skills, her infectious humor and that thousand watt smile. My heart is heavy. She was larger than life and we will all greatly miss the Gentlewoman from Cleveland. My prayers are with her family, friends and staff."

And this from a statement by House Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel (Ill.):

"I'm lucky enough to say that Stephanie was more than a colleague - she was a friend. Her son Merv was a student in my mother-in-law's fifth grade classroom and I was honored when she invited me to visit her home state and meet with Ohio Democrats. I'm grateful that I will have the memory of her boundless spirit and energy and my thoughts and prayers are with the Jones family during this difficult time."

Thank you, Ms. Jones, for your passionate, dedicated and strongly principled support for your candidate despite the trouble it got you in. Your dedication and inspired hard work is a testament not only to your own public service, but to all the "old politics" politicians who achieved the considerable gains we enjoy today. You (they) did it with a lot of hard work and often in the face of adversity.

The work of the brave and dedicated "old" politicians still benefits us all, as Ms. Jones' passing reminds us.

I had the privilege of meeting and talking with Rep. Tubbs Jones as she dropped by Sen. Clinton's campaign headquarters in Arlington, VA. I was very impressed that she took the time to greet the volunteers and staff floor by floor. She was a truly great woman. I actually told her that she deserves to be the first black president of our country better than Barack Obama. This country needs more women leaders like her and I hope voters would soon recognize this great need.

All important people in the past two months or so. Why are people dying so young in America these days? Is the US not supposed to be where Medicine saves lives?

These are rhetorical questions. They are just meant to teach us about our own mortality. The Scriptures says "Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." - Psalm 90:12.

Trust in Jesus Christ today and be saved. Tomorrow is not guaranteed!

FOUR people picked at random don't mean "people" are dying young. It means people you heard of. The life expectancy numbers are easily attainable on something called "the internet." Please don't disgrace this gentlelady's memory by using it for politics, as was so disgracefully done with Senator Paul Wellstone. Sometimes people die -- and they live longer and better and more prosperous lives in "America" on balance than anywhere else. It really disgusts me that someone would see a woman who gave her life in service to America, and think of how they could find fault with America.

Although it's true that people's life expectancies in this country are better than in many places in the world, we're far from the healthiest by that or any other measure compared to many other industrialized countries. It's simply not true that people "live longer and better and more prosperous lives in "America" on balance than anywhere else." These numbers too, Chico, are available on "the internet." If you're going to make unkind remarks to people you don't know, perhaps you should be sure of your facts.

My heart goes out to the Congresswoman's family. My mother died of a ruptured aneurysm at age 59. Very, very sad.

I remember Stephanie as being a very outspoken ally for Senator Clinton and I often wished and prayed that she would remember that we were ALL DEMOCRATS - we were ALL on the same team and like family when one hurts - we all hurt.

However, it is these uncertainties of life that should bring to question the motives those who for some reason or another are so determined to destroy the Democrats today for a possibility of a dream on tomorrow - not realizing nor respecting that tomorrow is not promised.

I'm sure Stephanie was looking forward to attending the Democratic convention in Denver next week, never realizing in this historical election year that her voice would be silenced - forevermore.

I send heartfelt condolences to the Jones family as their loss is heavy.

I also wish to remind every blogger/reader that your time on this earth is short and your next moment is never promised. May we continually be mindful of the harm our words cause and just how fragile your life and the life of your love ones can be. May we remember what is and should be MOST important is how we live our DASH - that mark that is found on your tombstone between your birth date and the date of death, for if nothing else is guaranteed in life one thing is promised - we are all going to die.

May we pray for one of our own for WE ARE DEMOCRATS!

And why? Because you can? Each of you hold dear to you something or someone and God help you when it is snatched away from you in a most merciless manner? Remember your callous thoughts on this day. And when the pain of loss has you deep within its grip and you can think of nothing more, know that you invited and welcomed this pain and devastation with your ugliness. Earned it fair and square.

As for Stephanie Tubb Jones, I wish she used her powerful place in our country to unite Democrats and execute a more conciliatary tone after it was clear HRC lost the nomination. But the same is vigor that she fought for Clinton with, she fought for working people in Ohio and everywhere. She was a no-nonsense, tell it like it is even if it hurts kind of public figure. Imagine that...a politician who wasn't afraid to tell the truth. May we all learn about and from her example, and may her legacy remind us about the decency of public service and standing tall for the voiceless.

lynde asked: "what is this creature that America breeds that is so full of hate and anger?"
It is a present-day Republican.
As a former Republican, who used to work in the Party itself, there used to be good people. After Nixon resigned, things changed, and you really started seeing it in the early 80s, and really grew when the fake evangelist preachers, like Falwell, Robertson, etc, began politicizing religion. It's what led me to leave the Party, even though I tended to still vote GOP. The real hate started, when the Rush Limbaugh types, started controlling the airwaves. If you ever listen to Rush, Hannity, Savage, etc, all you hear is hate, and the weak-minded just fall into line, and follow. And over a decade & a half, you see the result with such posts, and campaigns like McCain's.
Now, while I don't agree with all Democratic stands, I'll keep voting Democratic, until the good real Republicans, start controlling the Party again... and these hate filled people go back into their caves.

Although I did not support Ms. Tubbs-Jones views during the primaries, I respect her right to do so. It shouldn't matter whether one was a supporter of Clinton, Obama, or McCain, that should have nothing to do with the fact that someone has died. My heartfelt sympathies go out to her families. And may all of the ignoramous idiots posting nasty comments about her have a glorious time in the hell they are destined for.

"And all non believers shall burn in the Lake of Fire and suffer unbearable pain and torment. For those that are the chosen ones will be the sole beneficiaries of God's good grace"

- Revelations 9/28

This is the reason to vote for McCain

Stephenie Tubbs-Jones was a tenacious and couragous advocate for every course she beleived in and i pray that God grant her soul eternal peace.Her couragous stand against the Bush/ Iraq war is a reminder about her forsight and courage in confronting evil when she sees any. She started the war against the sub-prime lending before it became the vogue it is today.She is made in the mode of Houston's Jordan may her soul rest in peace.No nonsense Black woman

Can we not love? Let us pray her soul finds eternal rest in paradise with God who is Love, no matter what condition it might have been at the moment of her death. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Peace. Be not afraid.
