Here is a message from FDC Chair Mike Hugo:

“Members & Friends,

I am so sorry to have to announce that our beloved Jack Duffy has passed after a short but difficult illness. He passed away last night.

Please join me in prayer for Jack, and for Carmen as she summons the strength to keep moving forward.  This has been a terrible ordeal for Carmen as she has watched her most cherished friend endure this pain.

We will all need to band together to help Carmen in any way we can as the Framingham Democrats and one cousin are her closest family here in Massachusetts. 

I am so sorry to be writing this and cannot believe we have all lost a friend who loved us all, and to whom our Party and our Committee meant so very much. Jack and Carmen never said “no,” to any request, and we must honor him in any way we can.

I know I can speak for all of you when I say to Carmen that we love her and have always loved and will sorely miss our friend Jack.

I will keep you all posted regarding any arrangements, but as of this time, Carmen plans to have a cremation and to bring Jack back to Puerto Rico in the coming months.

With love and great sadness,

Mike Hugo”
