Rep. John Macco (R-Ledgeview) released the following statement about the passing of the former state Senator of the 30th Senate District, Jerome Van Sistine:

“Senator Van Sistine was a model citizen-legislator that many in the Wisconsin Legislature should look to emulate,” said Macco. “From his work as a carpenter, a town board member in Ashwaubenon and an active member at the Nativity Parish, Sen. Van Sistine dedicated his life to serve others and is well respected not only in Northeast Wisconsin but by many in Madison.

“His dedicated service to Northeast Wisconsin will be missed. My prayers go out to his family.”
