Ballerwives.com has learned that Sandi Jackson, the wife of former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., announced this past Friday that she was resigning from her Chicago City Council position because she could not adequately represent her district while dealing with “very painful health matters.”

NEWSONE.com reports:

Alderman Sandi Jackson, whose husband recently resigned from Congress while being treated for bipolar disorder and other medical issues, said in a letter to Mayor Rahm Emanuel that her resignation would be effective Tuesday.

“I am unapologetically a wife and a mother and I cannot deny my commitment to those most important personal responsibilities,” she wrote. Aside from citing health matters, she did not elaborate.

Her husband announced his resignation in November shortly after winning re-election, citing his health concerns but also acknowledging that he was under federal investigation. The Chicago Democrat and son of civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson stepped down amid a months-long medical leave that included two stays at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

His wife had said as recently as last month that she planned to serve out her city council term “unless something catastrophic happens.” She was first elected in 2007

Jesse Jackson Jr. met his wife, Sandi Stevens, during the 1988 presidential campaign.

While both still law students, Jesse and Sandi married on June 1, 1991. They have two children together.
