In a recent letter from state Senator Andre Jacque’s Communications Director Matt Tompach, he states that Senator Jacque was discharged from the hospital today. Senator Jacque was hospitalized Tuesday August 17th after learning the prior week that he had tested positive for COVID-19. The senator’s office confirmed that on the evening of Monday August 23rd Senator Jacque had been intubated and put on a ventilator. This letter now states that Senator Jacque is doing much better. While he still has a way to go with respiratory and occupational therapy, he is feeling good mentally, breathing well, and on the path to recovery. He is in touch with his staff on legislative and district issues while also reaching out to friends and colleagues.
