Duane Chapman, star of A & E’s reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter, has made a tragic announcement: His younger sister has died!
Jolene Kay Martinez, of Denver, died at the age of 62.
Martinez passed away unexpectedly from complications of pneumonia, and was removed from life support. She is survived by three siblings and two children.
Martinez was described as a “strong Christian“:
“Jolene was a very strong Christian, and I am absolutely positively sure she’s in heaven right now,” said a tearful Duane Chapman. “But in Hawaii we don’t say ‘goodbye,’ we say ‘Aloha Oe…until we meet, again,’ and I know I will see my sister, again, which gives all of us some comfort at this very sad time.”
They’re flying to Denver from Hawaii to arrange services.
Let us pray for the Chapman and Martinez family during this difficult time. RIP.
