The 49-year-old actress died days after being out of the hospital.


Liftable reported that actress DuShon Monique Brown passed away on March 23, 2018.

Brown admitted herself to a hospital in Chicago after experiencing chest pain earlier in the week. She was released from the hospital but died on Friday at Franciscan St. James Health Olympia Fields.

The 49-year-old passed away due to a cardiac episode. The exact cause of her death has not been revealed yet.

Brown is survived by her daughter, Zoe.

Brown was most popular for her role as Connie, Battalion Chief Wallace Boden’s secretary, on NBC’s Chicago Fire. She had made an appearance in 53 episodes of the show.


The actress also played Nurse Katie Welch on the first two seasons of Prison Break on Fox.

Dick Wolf, the Executive Producer of the series, said, “The Chicago Fire family is devastated to lose one of its own. Our thoughts and prayers are with DuShon’s family and we will all miss her.”

Robert Schroeder, who was Brown’s manager, said that everyone was devastated by the loss of the talented and kindhearted soul. He added that she brought laughter and joy to many and will be missed.

Brown was an alumnus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and had earned a graduate degree from Governors State University.


Before taking up acting, Brown worked as a counselor at Kenwood Academy High School and led the Drama Starz Program.

She was remembered by fellow actress Carla Stillwell as a brilliant actor who was also goofy at times. She added that the two used to get into trouble with the stage managers. “She was just a ham. And she was truly loved,” Stillwell said.

Brown’s final appearance on screen will be in the TV movie, Public Housing Unit as Commander Roberta. It will be released later this year.
