Family of Jacque, others urge vaccination

As State Senator Andre Jacque, who’s been hospitalized with COVID-19 for two weeks, battles COVID-19 induced pneumonia, his loved ones have spoken out in hopes of influencing you to get the vaccine. On Monday evening, Jacque’s wife Renee released a statement to Action 2 News in Green Bay, stating, “while vaccination is a personal choice, I ask that those individuals who are eligible and are able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine please consider placing their trust in the medical professionals who recommend it.” Renee Jacque went on to share her gratitude for the health professionals currently caring for Sen. Jacque. 


There has been no word on Sen. Jacque’s vaccination status, but his brother Pierre Jacque has also cited the hospitalization to drive people to vaccination. Two of Senator Jacque’s colleagues have asked their constituents to pray for him in the last two weeks. State Representative Joel Kitchens said on Tuesday that his office has been receiving a number of contacts regarding the health of Sen. Jacque. Kitchens added that Sen. Jacque is in his thoughts and prayers.
