It is with great shock and sadness that we offer our condolences and prayers to the family of Jake Brewer, the husband of Mary Katharine Ham, and the father of Georgia and a child on the way, as well as his colleagues and friends at the White House and Change.org. Jake died as a result of an accident while participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer bicycle rally and fundraiser. He gave his life while trying to help others, a quality that Jakes friends say is defining about him. Jake passed away yesterday at 34 years of age.
Mary Katharine published this statement on Instagram, along with a picture of their growing family:
We lost our Jake yesterday, and I lost part of my heart and the father of my sweet babies. I don't have to tell most of you how wonderful he was. It was self-evident. His life was his testimony, and it was powerful and tender and fierce, with an ever-present twinkle in the eye. I will miss him forever, even more than I can know right now. No arms can be her father's, but my daughter is surrounded by her very favorite people and all the hugs she could imagine. This will change us, but with prayer and love and the strength that is their companion, we can hope our heartache is not in vain-- that it will change us and the world in beautiful ways, just as he did. If that sounds too optimistic at this time, it's because it is. But there was no thought too optimistic for Jake, so take it and run with it. I will strive and pray not to feel I was cheated of many years with him, but cherish the gift of the years I had. In a life where nothing is guaranteed, Jake made the absolute, ever-lovin' most of his time with all of us. This is a family picture we took a couple weeks ago. It was taken because Jake, as always, was ready with a camera and his immense talent. All four members of our little, growing family are in it. I can never be without him because these babies are half him. They are made of some of the strongest, kindest stuff God had to offer this world. Please pray that he can see us and we'll all make him proud. God, I love him. Psalm 34:18, Philippians 1:3.
Nothing we can add would be adequate to the profound loss and sorrow which Mary Katharine, their families and their friends are suffering at the moment. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of them, and wed ask our readers to join us. Later, well ask a friend to give us a more complete recognition of Jakes life, but we do not wish to unnecessarily disturb them during this time of shock and mourning.
God our Father, Lord, those who die still live in Your presence, In company with Christ,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
In company with Christ,
“as well as his colleagues and friends at the White House and Change.org”
I don’t understand.
Mary Katherine Ham’s husband works (worked, RIP) for the White House and change.org?
How tragic, however, I have to openly admit that I don’t know who this guy is.
Sad story. Prayers for her, her kids and family.
Lost control on a corner and hit an oncoming car. As a cyclist I will not say anything.
Pray America is waking
Radio interview of Mary Katharine and Jake:
A beautiful couple.
It’s a tragic loss of life and robs kids of a father but it distresses me that hard core conservatve MKH is/was married to a WH hack. It only serves to bolster the notion that the whole ideological/political war in DC is a pantomime intended primarily to deceive.
Seems like yesterday we were celebrating Mary Katherine’s finally getting married. What a terrible sudden loss.
My prayers for her & for the repose of her husband’s soul.
A very sad turn of events. May this man rest in peace.
I feel betrayed.
I should have known better.
Big scam fake conservatives.
It is too bad it took a sad Premature death to expose this, and I have condolences for them.
Yet the total scam she and Salem and other media are perpetrating is the bigger story.
If this helps exposed the machinations of the GOPe and bring them down, then death of this Obama-ite was not in vain.
Benson and Ham are Fox News people.
So sad..so young..condolences to the Ham family RIP
I feel the same way.
Prayers to the family. I will refrain from further comment.
On the White House Web site, Brewer, known as Jake, is listed as a senior policy adviser in the Office of the Chief Technology Officer, which is part of the Office of Science and Technology Policy.
So her husband was partially responsible for not stopping the OPM hack?
Keep it in perspective. We know neither the time nor place.
Now I understand why she always pushes gay marriage so vehemently on Foxnews. She gets her talking point directly from the White House.
