Courtesy of Council Member Laurie A. Cumbo, who says of Thompson:

"To acknowledge the loss of this incredible man is immensely saddening, but let us be uplifted by the legacy he leaves behind. As the first African-American to be elected as Brooklyn's District Attorney, a husband, a son, a father of two, a brother, and a fighter, he was an incredible inspiration to many, including myself. Ken has left behind an extraordinary legacy and has truly raised the bar for District Attorneys across this nation."
