Washington, DC –Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement regarding the passing of Dimitrios "Jim" Komninos, Woodhaven community member and husband of Lisa Komninos, President of the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation.

                “I grieve alongside the entire community of Woodhaven over the loss of Lisa’s beloved husband and cherished community member, Jim. Tragically, Jim’s death comes within weeks of the passing of Lisa’s mother, Helen Grunseich.

                “A tireless fighter for the community she loves, Lisa comes to work every day to improve the lives of Woodhaven’s families and business owners. I hope Lisa and her sons John and Nicholas find some comfort in knowing that so many of us are sending our deepest condolences and prayers.”
