State Rep. Geanie Morrison’s Chief of Staff dies of heart attack

State Representative Geanie Morrison’s Chief of Staff for the past 18 years died Tuesday.

41-year-old Justin Unruh suffered a heart attack Christmas Eve and died a few days later.

We spoke with Representative Morrison today who is currently serving her ninth term in the Texas Legislature.

She says she took office in 1998, and hired Unruh in 1999.

She says Unruh contributed significantly not only to District 30, but to the State of Texas.

A memorial will be held in the next week and a half, although a date has not be set.
