By Tom Lehman/Frank Gerace

The chairman of the Sussex County Republican Committee has died.

The Sussex County GOP says Jerry Wood, who was elected to the position in March, died around 8:45 this morning at his home in Frankford. The Indiana native was 73 years old.

State Republican Party chairman John Sigler said in a statement Friday that Wood "left a significant mark" on the GOP at the local and national levels.

Wood was a delegate to the Republican National Convention in August. He's survived by two brothers, one son and four grandchildren.

Funeral arrangements haven't been announced.
