Statement by the President on the Passing of Representative Alan Nunnelee Michelle and I were saddened to learn of the passing of Representative Alan Nunnelee. Alan represented the people of his beloved Mississippi for two decades, first as a state senator and then in Congress. A proud son of Tupelo, Alan never wavered in his determination to serve the men and women who placed their trust in him, even as he bravely battled the illness that ultimately took his life.

Today, our thoughts and prayers are with Alan’s family – his wife Tori, their children and grandchildren, and all those who loved him.
