Former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine's son has died.

Corzine spokesman Steven Goldberg says 31-year-old Jeffrey Corzine had suffered from severe depression for years and killed himself Tuesday. Goldberg says he'd been receiving treatment for a painful physical and mental ailment and "made the tragic decision to take his own life."

Goldberg says in a statement issued Thursday the former governor is "devastated."

Jeffrey Corzine was the youngest of the former politician's three children with ex-wife Joanne Corzine. He often joined his father during the 2005 gubernatorial race and was by his side following a near-fatal 2009 car accident.

Jon Corzine was a Wall Street CEO before becoming a Democratic U.S. senator and governor.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie has sent condolences on behalf of "all the people of New Jersey." Christie defeated Corzine in 2009.
