Today, I am heartbroken.
My sweet friend, Mary Katherine Ham, lost her husband, Jake Brewer, in a tragic accident on Saturday, as he was attempting to finish a 150 mile charity bike ride. Jake, who had just taken a job as a technology adviser in the White House a few months ago, was crossing through a series of sharp turns when he lost control of his bike, crossed the center line and was hit by an oncoming vehicle. He leaves behind his wife, a daughter Georgia, a baby on the way, and a host of friends and family who loved him, and a world that was changed for the better because of him.
