Jacob "Jack" Kevorkian ( /kɛˈvɔrkiːɛn/; born May 26, 1928) is an Armenian-American pathologist, right-to-die activist, painter, composer, instrumentalist, and convicted murderer. He is best known for publicly championing a terminal patient's right to die via physician-assisted suicide; he claims to have assisted at least 130 patients to that end. He famously said that "dying is not a crime." Beginning in 1999 Kevorkian served eight years of a 10-to-25-year prison sentence for second-degree murder. Dr. Kevorkian passed away June 3, 2011. He was 83 years old.
