FLORIDA Governor Ron DeSantis has had his fair share of tragedies to deal with over the years.

Prior to becoming governor in 2019, he had to deal with the death of his sister, Christina, and many people are curious about what happened.

Christina DeSantis

Christina DeSantis was best known as the sister of Florida Representative Ron DeSantis.

Ronald and Karen DeSantis gave birth to her on May 5, 1985, in Orlando, Florida.

According to her obituary, she began working as a financial consultant for KPMG in Charlotte, North Carolina, after graduating from Florida State University with a Masters of Science degree in 2010.

She was an avid sports fan and has since been remembered for her “beautiful face, bubbly personality, incredible memory, intelligence” and Seminole pride.

Christina died on May 12, 2015, at the age of 30, after being admitted to a London hospital with a blood clot.

According to her death certificate, which was obtained by DailyMail.com, her official cause of death was pulmonary thromboembolism and an ovarian borderline mucinous tumor.

DeSantis never spoke about Christina’s death for many years, but that changed in 2023 when he appeared on Piers Morgan’s Fox Nation show, Piers Morgan Uncensored.

“It was just a shattering experience,” DeSantis tearfully recalled.

“I remember my mom calling me, my wife and I were on our way back from church on a Sunday morning, and she said that Christina was in the hospital and she had a blood clot but was stable.

“She was in the hospital for a couple of days and then had the embolism and died and I just didn’t think that was even possible at that point because I thought that she was stable.

“You have your sibling, their future was robbed and it’s something I wish I could get back. I know she probably would have moved back to Florida,” he continued.

“She was in Charlotte at the time working for a bank but she always wanted to get back here and so she would be here probably being involved in a lot of stuff that we were doing. I was the big brother so we were 7 years apart. So, we weren’t necessarily in the same school together or any of that.

“I was like rarefied air in some respect, she always looked up to me and I think some of it was because I was doing things, she would try to measure up to me and I told her don’t worry about that.

“You just be you and do what you can do. And she was very successful. When she got out of school she got her master’s and everything. So, it’s a tough thing. People have their whole lives ahead of them and when you’re talking about that age it’s a big tragedy.”

DeSantis added: “You start to question things that are unjust, like why did this have to happen? And you just have to have faith that there’s a plan in place, trust in God there’s no guarantee that you’re gonna have a life without challenges and without heartbreak and that’s just a function of being human. And so it (his faith) was important for me.”

DeSantis’ full interview can be watched live Thursday, March 23, 2023, starting at 9pm EST on Fox.

Christina was frequently seen spending time with her British fiancée Stephen Pasiewicz when she was not at work.

Pasiewicz’s personal life is currently unknown due to his preference for remaining out of the spotlight.

According to various online reports, the couple had planned to marry soon after her death.
