New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has ordered all government buildings in New Jersey to fly their flags at half-staff on Monday in honor of James Gandolfini. The New Jersey native and "Sopranos" star passed away on Wednesday of a heart attack.

Christie tweeted on Friday, "Today I ordered flags to be lowered throughout the state Monday in memory of New Jersey native James Gandolfini. http://bit.ly/183JO6K." Gandolfini was born in Westwood, went to Park Ridge High School, and graduated from Rutgers University.
