gshipleyPress Releases

Speaker Todd Gilbert issued the following statement:

“I am shocked and grieved to learn of the sudden death yesterday of our colleague, former Del. Jimmie Massie of Henrico. No one who served alongside him during his 10 years here in the House will ever forget him. While he was known outside the Capitol for his business success and deep involvement in his community, in the House he was known for his commitment to formulating good public policy. His love of detail was matched only by his outgoing, gregarious personality that made him a joy to serve with. To say that he will be missed among his former colleagues is a woeful understatement.”

“I ask that every Virginian join me in lifting up his wife Elizabeth and their children Jimmie, William, Becky, and John in prayer as they mourn the loss of a loving husband, a devoted father and a fine public servant.”
