Rep. Ulysses Jones has passed away

Jackson Baker is reporting the death of 12-term legislator Ulysses Jones (D-North Memphis) last night after an illness.  Jones was a longtime committee chair and had just been re-elected to a 13th term. Cause of death appears to be a collapsed lung.

Please remember his family and his colleagues in the legislature and the Memphis Fire Department in your prayers; this is a significant loss for Memphis and Shelby County and we mourn his passing.
