"On behalf of the city of Renton, I want to express my deepest condolences to Jennifer Dunn’s husband Keith Thomson and their sons Bryant Dunn, Reagan Dunn, and Angus Thomson; daughters-in-law Jessica Dunn and Paige Dunn; and two grandchildren. This is a great loss. Jennifer Dunn was one of the finest public servants in our state's history. 

She left an indelible mark on our state by building coalitions during her six terms in Congress. She was very well respected by the Renton community and never lost sight of our city as she represented the 8th District in Congress. Her commitment to public service is unmatched. She was a dedicated politician who gave 25 years of her life to serving residents of Washington. Her devotion serves as an inspiration to all.  She will be greatly missed.”
