Ryan McCann’s Statement on the Tragic Passing of Rep. Jackie Walorski

“I am extremely shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Congresswoman Jackie Walorski and the others involved in the car accident.  

Jackie’s start in politics coincided with my start at the Indiana Family Institute.  I had the privilege of working closely with her during her time serving in the Indiana House of Representatives.

From the moment I met Jackie, she made it very clear that she was very motivated by her faith in Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.  Prior to moving back to Indiana, she served as a missionary to Romania. The faith that inspired her to share the hope of the Gospel in a foreign land also motivated her to create a better community in her home state for her fellow Hoosiers.  

One of the many things that I respected and admired about Jackie was her determination.  She felt a responsibility to God and to her constituents to fight for what was right and she did that with all she had.  

Although Jackie was taken from us too soon, her drive towards faithfulness helped her do more in her lifetime than most of us could experience in multiple lifetimes.  I wish I could be a fly on the wall in heaven when Jackie hears, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant.'”
