Condolences continue to come in on the passing of conservative Jack Roeser, who passed away late Thursday night after battling colon cancer. He was 90 years old.
From Congressman Randy Hultgren: “Christy and I would like to offer our prayers to Jack's family. Jack was an unsurpassed giant in the conservative movement. He was an expert at translating the principles of conservatism into everyday actions and set the bar high for all of us. His entrepreneurial spirit and business success is a model for those in pursuit of the American Dream.
"His passion for education reform and ensuring that every child has an equal chance at succeeding was well known. He fought hard for accountability in the school system to ensure that all students received the education they deserved. He never wavered in the cause to ensure that the vision for limited government by our Founding Fathers was observed and respected. Jack will be greatly missed.”
From IL Republican National Committeewoman Demetra DeMonte: "I am so very sorry to hear of the death of Jack Roeser, my very dear friend and collegue . Jack and I spent many hours discussing countless topics.....always showing his love and concern for our country and the cause of conservatism. This great man of integrity and conviction will be greatly missed. May the Lord welcome you with open arms my dearest Jack!"
From GOP candidate Bruce Rauner: "I was saddened to learn of Jack's passing early this morning. Jack was a veteran and patriot, built a respected company and used his business success to give back to the community. He was always willing to stand up for what he believed in and impacted many lives in a positive way. He will be missed."
From Americans for Prosperity - Illinois' David From: “It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Jack Roeser. A giant in the conservative movement not only here in Illinois but nationally, he epitomized free market and conservative ideals as a successful businessman and philanthropist. It was a pleasure to present Jack with our first-ever ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at our Restore Illinois Summit last fall recognizing him as an inspiring force, who spoke honestly, loudly and courageously about what he believed. His legacy will live on for generations."
