BREAKING: New Jersey’s Lieutenant Governor, Sheila Y. Oliver, Has Died

New Jersey’s Lieutenant Governor has died.

Statement: It is with incredible sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the passing of the Honorable Sheila Y. Oliver, Lieutenant Governor of the State of New Jersey. She was not only a distinguished public servant but also our cherished daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and hero.

“As we come to terms with this profound loss, we kindly request that you respect the privacy of the Oliver family during this difficult time as they grieve their beloved Sheila.

“Sheila Y. Oliver leaves behind a legacy of dedication, service, and inspiration. We will remember her commitment to the people of New Jersey and her tireless efforts to uplift the community.

“Further information and details regarding memorial arrangements will be provided in due course. Until then, we appreciate your understanding and support.

“May her memory be a source of comfort and strength to all who knew her.”

Statement from Governor Murphy:

“Tammy and I, and our children, are incredibly saddened and distraught to learn of the passing of our dear friend, colleague, and partner in government, Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver.

“When I selected her to be my running mate in 2017, Lieutenant Governor Oliver was already a trailblazer in every sense of the word. She had already made history as the first Black woman to serve as Speaker of the General Assembly, and just the second Black woman in the nation’s history to lead a house of a state legislature. I knew then that her decades of public service made her the ideal partner for me to lead the State of New Jersey. It was the best decision I ever made.

“In the five and a half years that we served together in office, in addition to her responsibilities as Lieutenant Governor, Sheila led the Department of Community Affairs, handling some of the most challenging issues facing our State, including the revitalization of our cities, affordable housing obligations, and homelessness prevention. As someone who was born and raised in Newark, and who has called East Orange home for more than 40 years, Sheila did not view these issues in the abstract because she lived with them every day of her life. She brought a unique and invaluable perspective to our public policy discourse and served as an inspiration to millions of women and girls everywhere, especially young women of color.

“Beyond all of that, she was an incredibly genuine and kind person whose friendship and partnership will be irreplaceable. We ask that you all keep the Oliver family and all those who knew and loved her in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

  1. According to reports she had health issues for years. Not life threatening, but health issues non the less. Thus this was unexpected.

  2. @Very Important and Hocker411, I have a close friend who died of COVID R”L. I personally knew many of the people who died of COVID. The COVID vaccine and boosters kept me from getting a bad case of COVID until way after the first wave. I had a mild case because of the vaccine. I am a senior citizen and I don’t know anyone who died from the vaccine or who had a mysterious death. I thank Hashem every day for the vaccines, which I admit are not perfect. But they did the job of slowing down the pandemic and keeping many people from becoming seriously ill. By spreading the ignorant notion that the vaccine is the cause of all these “mysterious” deaths, you are throwing Hashem’s gift back in His face. The cause of the lieutenant governor’s death is not a mystery. It is just something private which she & her family don’t want to share. STOP spreading ignorance & lies! Learn to appreciate the gifts that Hashem gives us!

    • And I know lots of people who are having horrible health issues due to the vaccine. That’s what their doctors told them. vaccines should not be mandated for all!

    • @GetOver it – Sadly I wish you were right but the data is available now to see that the vaccines are causing sudden death, blood clotting, turbo cancers and other terrible effects R”L. I hear all the time of these sudden deaths and they are reported all over the world. IF you took the vaccine, reach out to Lev Aharon Bikur Cholim to get a detox protocol that could potentially prevent some of these horrible effects that are still happening.
      The reason people keep asking what seems like an annoying question “was she vaccinated” is to bring this awareness to people to save lives. DO NOT TAKE ANY MORE BOOSTERS! And if you did, please take a detox protocol right away. Wishing you good health and a long life!

      Main parts of the detox:
      1) Dr’s Best Lumbrokinase (prevents clotting) –
      2) essiac tea (gently removes toxins)
      3) thiamin plus B complex

      details of how to take, when to take and where to order, please reach out to LevAharonBikurCholim. (They have a gmail account) An organization that makes no profit and is only there to help save lives.

      • @Please Read, you are talking to the wrong person. I started reading your comment with interest until I read the ingredients of the detox. It is well known among my family and acquaintances that I do NOT go for alternative medicine. Reading those ingredients would make me laugh if this weren’t serious. Why our community, which is supposed to be part of and am chacham venavon, falls for bogus alternative medicine is way beyond me. But I am not one of them and I ask you too to stop spreading ignorance and lies. I agree that the vaccine wasn’t perfect because it was a rush job. But it did the job of helping to slow down the pandemic at the time. Please do not throw Hashem’s gift back in his face.

        • Alternative medicine? How about good old medicine!!! Over 5600 yrs we were not exposed to anything similar to modern medicine. Vaccines and antibiotics were Hashems gift to us, sadly we made it into Avoda Zorah, and now we have to suffer the consequences. Remember CHAZAL said too much gold led to Chait Haeigel!

        • I will not try to change your mind if you don’t believe in alternative health, but for all others out there reading this who want to protect yourselves, please look into detox protocols. The mainstream medical system has no remedies (and often no explanation) for these “unexplained sudden deaths” and turbo cancers. The products listed were tried and tested on many people. Sometimes the medical establishment has no answer and people are helped by other methods that Hashem has put in this world. Alternative health also doesn’t have all the answers but it has saved many many lives. I personally use both mainstream and alternative medicine as they both have a time and place. Look at the reviews on Lumbrokinase on Amazon (for example) and you will see what people say about it. Hatzlocha!

        • Why did the CDC recall one of the three vaccines?
          Fact is if it was rushed than the study was not complete.

          Also, the “alternative medicine” like natural immunity was recognized early in Israel.
          There is also another “alternative study” out of israel that those who were not deficient in vitamin D were 7 times less likely to get very sick with COVID.
          Vitamin levels are recognized by the medical community but alot of times it is reactive to a problem not proactive. During the pandemic monitoring vitamin levels, hydrating well, resting well etc was crucial but that wasn’t being pushed – the vaccine was and it was even being pushed on people who had natural immunity. Like i said even israel recognized natural immunity early on. Thats ignoring thousands of years of science here in the USA.

          Furthermore, pushing for the vaccine on children was also hard to understand.

  3. There is a picture of her getting the covid vaccine and holding up her card proudly. She may have had health issues for years but a toxic vaccine that is causing worldwide death could definitely have contributed especially since the death was sudden. Sadly another victim.

    • Hashem should help that you stay strong and healthy. But sadly just today another frum man collapsed and died suddenly in Eretz Yisroel with no warning. Take the detox and don’t take chances.

  4. These people don’t just leave comments on websites. They walk into shiva homes and ask loudly if the niftar was vaccinated. Shiva homes now need a sign on the wall detailing exactly when the niftar was vaccinated and how many boosters were received.

  5. Another prominent public figure dies suddenly after getting the poisoned jab. The mainstream media is evil and has the western world under the most devastating trance. Global corporations and pharmaceutical companies control our thoughts and actions through research based advertising that is straight up mind control. Couple that with deadly clot shots, and you see the full, vile face of evil that rules over us
