Stephanie Tubbs Jones

U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones died at Huron Hospital after suffering a brain aneurysm Tuesday night. She was a Cleveland icon, and a state icon as the first black woman to represent Ohio in Congress.

Cleveland Magazine ran a lengthy feature on Tubbs Jones in 1993 as she was still a rising political power and named her one of the 30 people who defined Cleveland in 2002.
