Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement in response to reports that former Senator John Glenn passed away:

“Today, we lost a true American hero with the passing of former Senator John Glenn. He was the first NASA astronaut to orbit the Earth and a true public servant.  A pioneer in every sense of the word, Senator Glenn was always eager to explore uncharted territory and reach for the heavens.  He is in the heavens now. Our prayers go out to his family, may he rest in peace.”
