Fasano Statement on the Passing of WFSB Anchor Denise D’Ascenzo

December 8, 2019

Senate Republican Leader Len Fasano (R-North Haven) released the following statement on the passing of WFSB news anchor Denise D’Ascenzo.


“Connecticut has lost a true treasure. My heart breaks for Denise’s loved one during this extremely difficult time. Denise was a friend. I have had the honor of knowing her and her husband for many years.  Denise was a sincere, talented professional who cared deeply about others. Whether she was anchoring the news desk, conducting an interview or just talking to people in the community, she always made people feel at ease and welcomed. Anyone who ever had the honor of meeting her knows how immediately memorizing her kind, gentle and warm aura truly was. I know I will miss Denise, as will countless others across our state whose lives she touched.  Her impact on our state, as an accomplished journalist, role model and friend to so many, will not be forgotten.”
