Former Indiana Congressman Andy Jacobs, Jr. died over the weekend at the age of 81.
Jacobs, a Democrat, was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1964, and lost his seat only once in 1972 to former Indianapolis Mayor Bill Hudnut.
Gov. Mike Pence released a statement praising Jacobs’ leadership in Indiana and Washington.
“Andy Jacobs, Jr.’s contributions to the life of our state and nation are incalculable and I mark his passing with a sense of personal loss,” Pence said. “Andy Jacobs personified the kind of principled and compassionate leadership that Hoosiers most admire and he will be greatly missed.”
A former Marine, Jacobs was known for his early outspoken opposition to the Vietnam War. He was also a longtime member of the House Ways and Means Committee and helped draft the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Jacobs served 14 terms as a congressman representing Indiana’s 10th Congressional District until his retirement in 1997.
