Statement from Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba

Regarding the Passing of Hinds County Sheriff Lee Vance

 

(JACKSON, Miss) – The City of Jackson collectively grieves the loss of Hinds County Sheriff Lee Vance and sends its prayers to his family. Sheriff Vance was a bright light in the City of Jackson demonstrating an unwavering commitment to its residents through his lifetime of work ensuring public safety. Sheriff Vance loved serving people, a love that was often shown through the warmth of his infectious smile. His lifetime of service spanned from serving as a JPD officer to later rising up the ranks to become JPD chief of police and finally serving as our beloved sheriff. Sheriff Vance was not only a friend to our city, but I considered him a personal friend of mine. He supported efforts toward the growth and development of Jackson and was a personal support to both me and my father. Our prayers are with his family and all of those who were touched by his life.

-Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba
