WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman David Rouzer released the statement below following the passing of Congressman Walter B. Jones:

“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Congressman Walter B. Jones.  He humbly served the great people of Eastern North Carolina in the state legislature and in Congress for more than 30 years.  Having known Walter for more than twenty-three years, I can attest to his great faith in our Creator and his servant’s heart.  The citizens of this state and country have lost a great friend whose influence will be felt for generations to come.  My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Joe Anne, his daughter, Ashley, and other loved ones during this very difficult time.”
