Civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson has left the hospital for a rehabilitation center in Chicago after surgery, according to the Rainbow PUSH Coalition.

Jackson, the 79-year-old civil rights leader, was admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for abdominal discomfort on January 29, according to a statement from the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, the Chicago-based organization that Jackson heads.

“He is in good spirits and will be discharged in a few days,” the statement read. “Thank you for your continued love, support, and prayers.”

There were no further details about Jackson’s condition released.

Jackson was diagnosed in 2017 with Parkinson’s disease, a neurological disorder with no cure. At the time, Jackson said his diagnosis was “a signal that I must make lifestyle changes and dedicate myself to physical therapy in hopes of slowing the disease’s progression.”

Jackson, a two-time Democratic presidential candidate, is an icon of the civil rights movement and worked closely with Martin Luther King Jr.
