John D’Amato — a fixture in Staten Island politics — died suddenly Saturday.
D'Amato's family says he died of a heart attack while jogging on Staten Island.
He was currently running former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's presidential campaign in the city. Along with Giuliani, D'Amato, 52, worked with several other New York Republicans over his career, including Councilman James Oddo and Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro.
More recently D'Amato was on the board of directors for NYC 2012, the city's failed bid for the Olympics.
He leaves behind a wife and two sons.
