Jersey City Mayor Fulop Mourns Passing of Councilman Yun Due to COVID-19
Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop released the following statement following the passing of Ward D Councilman Michael Yun from complications due to COVID-19:
“We are beyond saddened by the passing of Councilman Michael Yun. He was a family man, a great businessman, and a tireless advocate for Jersey City throughout his nearly 3 decades of public service. More than that though, he was a great husband, father, and grandfather as he never missed a chance to share how proud he was of his family. This is devastating for all of us here, as Michael was part of our Jersey City family. We will miss him and we will continue to aggressively fight against this pandemic, now in his honor.”
Fulop this afternoon tweeted that ‘It’s w/a heavy heart that we share that Councilman Yun has passed away. He was a great co worker and a tireless advocate for the people of #JerseyCity – More than that he was a great father, husband, and grandfather. I can speak for the entire JC community that we are devastated’.
Governor Murphy paid tribute to Yun at his daily briefing on Monday afternoon.
Yun had been hospitalized due to COVID-19; Councilman Lavarro has also tested positive from COVID-19 and is self-isolating at home, as of last week.
