Benninghoff said Reese, 42, was at Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, with his family was at his side when he died. 

“More than a friend to all of us, and one of our caucus leaders, Mike was a devoted husband and father. His wife, three young children and extended family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time,” the statement read.

Reese, a Republican, was elected for the 59th District in 2009, replacing retiring state Rep. Jess Stairs. His district included parts of Westmoreland and Somerset counties. In 2019 he won a fifth term in office.

Reese was the lead sponsor of a bill to allow school officials to determine whether to hold sports and extracurricular activities amid the coronavirus pandemic. Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed the measure.
