Rogers died last week at age 49. He was sworn in as Colorado's lieutenant governor in 1999 and served until 2002. He was the youngest American elected as a state lieutenant governor and Colorado's second African American lieutenant governor.

Rogers also was the last man independently nominated as Colorado's lieutenant governor.
