By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Mario CuomoFormer Governor Mario Cuomo (D-NY) is no more, Save Jerseyans, departing the earth at 82 following complications from a heart condition only hours after his son, Andrew, was sworn in to a second term as Governor of New York.

Andrew Cuomo’s political ally on the other side of the tunnel, Chris Christie, eulogized the father in a Thursday evening statement: 

“Our country and our region lost a giant today with the passing of Governor Mario Cuomo. He was a strong, eloquent leader who loved New York and its people. As an Italian-American, he was also a role model for future generations that anything was possible through hard work and education. Finally, he was a great husband, father and grandfather. Mary Pat and I send our deepest condolences to Matilda, Governor Andrew Cuomo and the entire Cuomo family.”
