Sen. Jacque Discharged to Rehabilitation Facility

Madison – A spokesperson for state Sen. André Jacque (R-De Pere) said the senator was discharged from the hospital Tuesday to another facility to continue the rehabilitation phase of his recovery. Jacque, 40, became ill in mid-August with COVID-19-induced pneumonia and was placed on a ventilator Aug. 23. 

Matt Tompach, the senator’s communications director, said Jacque “has a ways to go as he continues respiratory and occupational therapy,” but “he is feeling good mentally, breathing well and making substantial progress toward regaining his health.”

Tompach said the senator is in touch with his staff on legislative and district issues and is reaching out to friends and colleagues.

“He and his family wish to thank everyone for the prayers and good wishes that are making his recovery possible,” Tompach said.
