Duane Chapman, who is better known as Dog The Bounty Hunter, made a devastating announcement this week when he revealed his beloved younger sister Jolene Kay Martinez had passed away. She was only 62 years-old.
According to 9 News, Martinez died unexpectedly due to complications from pneumonia, and her family removed her from life support in Denver late Monday night. She left behind two children and three siblings.
“Jolene was a very strong Christian, and I am absolutely positively sure she’s in heaven right now,” a tearful Chapman said. “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.”
Please keep Duane Chapman and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
