Duane Chapman devastated by the loss of his younger sister

Honolulu, HI (Tuesday, May 17, 2016) – Duane and Beth Chapman, of A&E’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter” and CMT’s “Dog and Beth: On The Hunt,” are saddened to confirm the passing of Duane’s younger sister, Jolene Kay Martinez, 62, of Denver Colorado. Jolene unexpectedly passed away from complications of pneumonia, and was removed from life support last night, Monday, May 16, 2016, at 6:05 p.m. Hawaii Time. Jolene is survived by her two children and three siblings. “Jolene was a very strong Christian, and I am absolutely positively sure she’s in heaven right now,” said a tearful Duane Chapman. “But in Hawaii we don’t say ‘goodbye,’ we say ‘Aloha Oe…until we meet, again,’ and I know I will see my sister, again, which gives all of us some comfort at this very sad time.” Duane and Beth Chapman are flying to Denver from Hawaii immediately to arrange Jolene’s services.
