IBLC, News & Media, Media Releases

House Democratic Floor Leader Cherrish Pryor (D-Indianapolis) released the following statement mourning State Sen. Jean Breaux (D-Indianapolis): 

“State Senator Jean Breaux was a pillar in our community and spent her career fighting to make Indiana a better place for all Hoosiers. She was a champion for better health outcomes and consistently stood against efforts to increase utility cost. 

“Beyond that, and also being a colleague, Jean was the big sister I never had. Some of my fondest memories from my time as a legislator were the hours we spent talking during our car rides for the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus Town Halls. Jean never failed to make those around her laugh and was a consistent shoulder to cry on for anyone who needed it. She was thoughtful, cared deeply about her family and her district, and was the very example of what a public servant should be. I will miss the conversations and laughs we shared while joking about our sisterly relationship.

“Anyone who knew Jean also knew she was a woman of strong faith, and she is in my prayers during this heartbreaking time. Words cannot express how much I will miss her, and I am sending my love and sincere condolences to her mother, Billie.”
