Statement by the President

Jack Gilligan lived his life in service to his fellow Americans, especially those in his home state of Ohio and across the United States who were left out or left behind. During World War II, he earned a Silver Star for his bravery at Okinawa, and he never stopped serving his country—as a Congressman, where he helped enact historic legislation from the Voting Rights Act to Medicare and Medicaid, and then as governor of Ohio.

 

In addition to his many other accomplishments, Jack was the father of four extraordinary children, including our Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius. Kathleen followed in the high tradition of public service that Jack set, and they became the first father-daughter team of governors in American history. She always made her father proud, and I’m proud to have her on my team each and every day. Michelle and I extend our deepest condolences to Kathleen, the entire Gilligan family, and their many friends.

  1. I love the POTUS and his wonderful wife, Mrs Obama… :-) All the French press & TV channels have mentioned the 50th anniversary of “I have a dream…”, one of them:

    guess what: both mr MLK and Mrs Obama are “Cappies” like me… (My late dad, RIP, was born on Jan 15th…) I do NOT believe in coincidences, do you?… :-)
