Mary Katherine Ham is a conservative commentator and frequent Fox News guest who is known for her no-nonsense attitude. Unfortunately, she just made a devastating announcement that has left her fans all over the country praying for her and her family.
According to Mediaite, Ham’s husband Jake Brewer was killed last week in bicycle accident. Though his wife is a staunch conservative, Brewer worked in Obama’s White House in the Office of the Chief Technology Officer. The 34 year-old was participating in an event to raise money for cancer when he lost control of his bike and collided with an oncoming car.
Obama released the following statement after he heard the news:
“I am heartbroken at the tragic loss of one of my advisors, Jake Brewer. We set out to recruit the best of the best to join their government and help us harness the power of technology and data to innovate new solutions for the 21st century. Simply put, Jake was one of the best. Armed with a brilliant mind, a big heart, and an insatiable desire to give back, Jake devoted his life to empowering people and making government work better for them. He worked to give citizens a louder voice in our society. He engaged our striving immigrants. He pushed for more transparency in our democracy. And he sought to expand opportunity for all. I’ve often said that today’s younger generation is smarter, more determined, and more capable of making a difference than I was as a young man. Jake was proof of that. Michelle and I are praying for all of Jake’s family and his many friends, most of all his wife, Mary Katharine Ham, their daughter, Georgia, and their growing family. They’ll always have a family here at the White House.”
Ham, who is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child, made the heartbreaking announcement in a touching Instagram post.
Please pray for Mary Katherine and her family during this incredibly difficult time.
