Jeff had been in and out of rehab for his entire life and suffered from depression, , according to the New York Post. He had been working as a drug counselor in California.

“On Tuesday morning, he succumbed to his disease and made the tragic decision to take his own life,” a Jon Corzine spokesperson told the Post.

“Mr. Corzine is obviously devastated by this tragic loss,” the spokesperson said. “We ask that all respect his family’s privacy during this very difficult time.”

Jeff, along with Josh and Jennifer, was one of three children of Jon and Joanne Corzine.

Gov. Chris Christie Thursday sent his condolences to the Corzine family.

"My thoughts and prayers are with Governor Corzine, Joanne and the entire Corzine family on the tragic loss of Jeffrey," Christie said in a statement Thursday. They are both devoted parents and the loss they have suffered is unthinkable. Mary Pat and I send our personal condolences and condolences on behalf of all the people of New Jersey to the Corzine family during these very sad times."

"On behalf of the Assembly Republican Caucus, I wish to offer our condolences to Governor Corzine, his family, friends and loved ones," said Bramnick. "It is a terrible tragedy to lose one’s son or daughter. May he rest in peace."

WTF do Democrats, Republicans, Liberals, Conservatives have to do with anything here. The man lost his son. If you can't have any compassion for him FU and just keep your mouth shut. Didn't your mother teach you that if you have nothing good to say don't say anything?
