We were saddened today to learn of the passing of former Biloxi Mayor and MS House member Jerry O'Keefe of Biloxi. Our deepest condolences to his family, city that he loved and the untold numbers that counted him as a friend.

A real hero to his country, state, and community, Mr. O'Keefe was the epitome of a public servant - helping those that will never even know who he was! A great man who will be long remembered.
