Statement on the Passing of Congressman Hagedorn  

St. Paul - Today, Rep. Jeremy Munson (R-Lake Crystal) made the following statement:

“Congressman Jim Hagedorn was a steadfast conservative and a Minnesotan who truly loved our state. With his passing, we have lost a true American patriot, and a champion for southern Minnesota. 

I first got to know Jim when he was running for Congress. During those campaigns, I learned firsthand how dedicated Jim was to serving the people. His compassionate concern for every individual was evident to all. As a candidate and congressman, Jim was a fighter. He was not satisfied to sit back and let others make all the decisions. Just like his father, Jim always wanted to be in the arena and serve his country. 

Throughout the whirlwind of campaigns and politics, Jim was always a good friend. I always appreciated Jim’s advice and thoughtful counsel. He freely gave of his wealth of political experience, and he was always quick to lend a hand. I am saddened to learn of Jim’s passing, but I know he will always be remembered for his fierce dedication to his fellow Minnesotans.

My deepest condolences to Jennifer, and all of their family and friends.”
