Duprey with Debbie Jerdo on floor

Assemblywoman Janet L. Duprey (R,I-Peru) was joined today by her fellow Assembly members and Debbie Jerdo of Saranac Lake. Debbie and her husband Don’s daughter, Lindsey, died of meningitis in 2001 and their son, Joshua, committed suicide three years later because he could not get over the loss of his sister. The Jerdos are very strong advocates for vaccinating children against meningitis and work diligently on suicide prevention issues.
