Some of Brown's other notable TV credits included a few episodes of Boss on Starz to go along with Prison Break. She also appeared in various Chicago stage productions. "DuShon, most affectionately known to many as Connie on NBC's "Chicago Fire", died suddenly Friday morning of natural causes". "I am so sorry for your loss", one fan wrote.
