Meet Jill Romann
My name is Jill Romann. I currently serve as the Chief Deputy Coroner for Douglas County and I am the conservative choice candidate now running for the office of Douglas County Coroner. I joined Douglas County Coroner’s Office to continue using my leadership, knowledge, passion and experience to conduct professional death investigations. I bring more than 23 years of experience with me and have investigated thousands of deaths, assisted in autopsying thousands of bodies, and worked in every area of responsibility of the coroner’s office. My knowledge stems from my background as a mortician, funeral director and leader for some of the nation’s top Medical Examiners Offices including Hennepin County which is home to nearly 1.2 million residents. I trained under the foremost forensic experts in the field and bring with me a wealth of academic and professional knowledge.
The coroner is charged with the responsibility of accurately and scientifically discerning cause and manner of death. In order to meet this responsibility, the office works hand in hand with police agencies, federal agencies, local law enforcement, families and the community. While I believe it is important to utilize the resources of other departments, I also respect the need for independent and unbiased coroner services. As coroner, I will fight to find the truth for the families and the community we serve. That is how I will best serve the citizens of Douglas County.
I offer what matters for the Douglas County Coroner’s Office.
Independence, experience and compassion are traits I value. Your support for my candidacy matters. I personally share the values of the constituents I serve including fiscal responsibility, improved training for investigators and transparency. Your support and pledge will enable me to continue the tradition of excellence in medico-legal investigations of death. Please take the time to get to know me through this website, planned events, and by sending me your questions and input. I would love if you would join the Jill For Coroner Team. I look forward to meeting and hearing from you.
