Ownby on the mend after a pancreatic attack


Jeff Ownby

Commissioner Jeff Ownby has been in the hospital after a pancreatic attack, according to a county news release. This is retyped from a PDF, so please forgive any typos:

Commissioner Jeff Ownby suffered a pancreatic attack last Wednesday, July 2, 2014. He is being released from the UT Medical Center and credits the skill, hard work and wonderful care of the doctors and nursing staff at UT with his rapid recovery.

Commissioner Ownby looks forward to resuming his duties after a brief respite, but remains available to his constituents by phone at 441-6162.

‘I want to thank everyone for all the well-wishes and prayers, and hope to be back in the saddle in a few days.’

Good to hear that he’s out of the hospital. Hoping he has a speedy recovery.
