In Memoriam

March 15, 2019

We are stunned and saddened at the loss of our friend and colleague. Ezequiel Santiago was a giant of our Caucus and the entire Legislature. His commitment to the people of Bridgeport was legendary.

As a member of the House Democrats’ leadership team, Ezequiel was universally respected for his knowledge of the issues and his quiet, even-handed leadership of the Banks Committee.

Community defined Ezequiel Santiago. He believed that together, we could be better. He was a leader in the state’s Latino community who brought people together, no matter how tough or controversial the issue.

Please keep Ezequiel's constituents, family and friends in your thoughts. He touched a lot of lives and made Connecticut a better place.

Our hearts are broken. We will miss his strong, quiet leadership. We will miss his friendship.

With Sympathy,
-Joe Aresimowicz and Matt Ritter
