A giant of Alaska history left us last week. Jay Kerttula was Speaker of the House, President of the Senate, and an accomplished bipartisan legislator. His was a powerful voice for working Alaskans.

I learned so much working with both of his daughters: Anna in Sen. Ted Stevens’ office, and Beth in the State Capitol. It’s a great honor to have Jay’s State Seal hanging in my Capitol office. My condolences go out to his entire family.

My statement on the passing of Jalmar “Jay” Kerttula, a longtime former state lawmaker who died at 92 last week:

Jay Kerttula was a great Alaskan who served in the Legislature for 34 years and is the only legislator to be both Speaker of the House of Representatives and President of the Senate. Senator Kerttula played a vital role in shaping many of our institutions in the years immediately following statehood and beyond. His unwavering dedication to Alaska and public service, and his powerful voice and vision will be dearly missed. But his legacy as a leader who equally respected friends and adversaries alike will live on. We are grateful for his service. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
