“We are proud to honor Illinois State Senate President Emil Jones,” says Colleen Kannaday, president of St. Francis Hospital & Health Center. “He is a true friend to the communities within his district. His work speaks for itself, and his priorities have made an immeasurable impact on thousands of individuals throughout the South Side and the entire State of Illinois.”
Jones served as Senate Democratic Leader from 1993-2003. In 2003, he was elected President of the Illinois Senate. Under President Jones’ leadership, the Illinois General Assembly has passed legislation including a prescription drug discount program for senior and disabled citizens, equal pay for equal work, expanded health care programs for working families, increased the minimum wage, increased funding for education and reformed Illinois’ criminal justice system.
