NEW YORK (77 WABC) – Jersey City Councilman Michael Yun has died of complications due to the coronavirus.
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop made the announcement on twitter.
It’s w/a heavy heart that we share that Councilman Yun has passed away. He was a great co worker and a tireless advocate for the people of #JerseyCity – More than that he was a great father, husband, and grandfather. I can speak for the entire JC community that we are devastated
