With deep sadness, the Dare County Board of Commissioners acknowledges the death of Jack Shea who served as a Dare County Commissioner from 2006 to 2017.
Commissioner Shea will forever be remembered for the vast amount of executive level business experience he brought to the Board of Commissioners.
