The RV Industry Association mourns the tragic death of Representative Jackie Walorski and the members of her congressional team, Zachery Potts and Emma Thomson. As a founding member of the RV Caucus, Jackie was a true friend and champion of the RV industry and she served as a passionate and powerful voice for all of her constituents in Indiana’s 2nd district.
“The drive and enthusiasm Congresswoman Walorski had for the RV industry and the people of Indiana’s second district was unmatched,” said RV Industry Association Chair Jeff Rutherford. “There is no one who more consistently advocated on behalf of the RV industry in Congress and we as an industry are better off for it. This is truly a sad day for all who knew her, and we wish to express the heartfelt condolences of the entire RV industry to Jackie’s family and the families of Zachery and Emma during this incredibly difficult time.”
“As the Representative for the RV Capitol of the World, Congresswoman Walorski had a deep understanding and passion for the RV industry and the people in it,” said RV Industry Association President & CEO Craig Kirby. “She championed numerous RV-related endeavors on Capitol Hill, including founding the House RV Caucus, sponsoring and introducing key legislation on behalf of the industry, and delivering positive testimony during congressional hearings. Jackie not only lit up a room with her passion for Indiana, she commanded any room with her incredible intellect and understanding of how business and manufacturing drive the US economy. She has left an indelible mark on the RV industry and we are very grateful for her service to her district and the country.”
