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." Gandolfini was born in Westwood, went to Park Ridge High School, and graduated from Rutgers University.
