Curt Eysink, who led the Louisiana Workforce Commission from 2009 to 2016, died Friday after suffering a stroke. He was 53. Eysink had been ill since last Monday, when during a drive to New Orleans, he lapsed into unconsciousness.

After suffering a stroke during his treatment, he died quietly among family and friends Friday.
