Dane County Executive Joe Parisi issued the following statement regarding the passing of community leader Juan Jose Lopez:

"Juan’s passing is a shock and a great loss. Juan was a leader in both the Latino community as well as the greater Dane County community. He cared deeply about our children and their future and was a tireless advocate on their behalf. Of all the times Juan and I interacted, he never asked for anything for himself; it was always to urge that we do more to help others. We are fortunate that Juan chose Madison as his home so many years ago. He enriched our community and provided opportunity and advancement for countless individuals."
