Statement from DFL Chairman Ken Martin on the Death of Craig Walz

“The DFL was saddened to learn that Rep. Tim Walz’s brother, Craig Walz, was killed during the storms this weekend in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) while on a trip with his son. Craig, a beloved math and science teacher at St. Charles High School in Southern Minnesota, is remembered by his family, students, and community as an amazing husband and father, and outstanding teacher, a passionate mentor and loving friend.

“Craig’s son Jacob was injured in the same incident. We join with his family and friends and hope for a quick recovery.
“The thoughts and prayers of all of us at the Minnesota DFL are with Craig’s wife Julie, his daughter Avery, and all of Rep. Walz’s family as they go through this unthinkable tragedy.”
