Three-Day Battle Ends in Grief: St. Lucie County Official’s Passing After Car Crash

Jennifer DuBey, a Director of Business Development at the St. Lucie County Economic Development Council, passed away three days after being injured in a solo car accident, officials reported on Tuesday.

Jennifer DuBey, aged 47 and a resident of Port St. Lucie, passed away on Monday afternoon at HCA Florida Lawnwood Hospital in Fort Pierce.

The incident occurred at 1:50 a.m. on Friday when the Port St. Lucie police responded to an accident at Southeast Sandia Drive and Crosstown Parkway.

DuBey was driving an eastbound silver Toyota SUV on Crosstown Parkway when the vehicle veered off the right shoulder and collided with a tree on the hill, resulting in the vehicle rolling over, according to Port St. Lucie police.

Emergency personnel from the St. Lucie Fire District extricated her and transported her to Lawnwood Hospital in critical condition, where she remained in a coma.

Jenn DuBey initially joined the EDC in 2019 as a Business Manager and was subsequently promoted to Director of Business Development in April 2022.

Prior to her work with the EDC, she had worked with CareerSource Research Coast and the Business Development Board of Martin County.

DuBey, who was not married, only had family residing out of state.
