Statement from Governor Quinn on the Passing of Dr. Jerry Umanos

CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–April 24, 2014.  Governor Pat Quinn today released the following statement on the death of Dr. Jerry Umanos. Dr. Umanos was a Chicago pediatrician who moved his practice to Afghanistan and was among three Americans killed Thursday at a Kabul hospital by an Afghan guard.

“I was very saddened to hear of the tragic death of Dr. Jerry Umanos, ‘Dr. Jerry,’ a kind-hearted and selfless man who for years sacrificed the comforts of home to serve those in need overseas.

“Dr. Jerry helped countless people throughout his lifetime. While there are no words in the English language to ease the pain, we can find comfort in his life’s work and all those he healed here at home and around the world.

“I offer my condolences to Dr. Jerry Umanos’ wife, their children and his colleagues at the Lawndale Christian Health Center and in Kabul.”
