Very sad to hear about DuShon's passing yesterday. I'm grateful we got to work with her and so happy she got to make millions of people smile. She will be greatly missed.

According to Deadline, Brown “played the no-nonsense assistant Connie, joined the Chicago Fire cast on a recurring basis during the show’s first season in 2012 and appeared in 54 episodes. She also appeared on Fox’s Prison Break as infirmary nurse Katie Welch and guested on Empire, Shameless, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and Boss.”
A $10,000 GoFundMe has been set up to support the family.
