White House Pays Tribute to Jake Brewer

‘They have a family here at the White House’

"Before we get started, I just wanted to make note of piece of news I think that at all you saw over the weekend, and that is the tragic death of my colleague at the White House, Jake Brewer. I think many of you saw the -- a statement from the president indicating that he was heartbroken we learned of this news. And I just -- on behalf of all of my colleagues here at the White House, we're thinking about and praying for Jake's family today. They're going through obviously a very difficult time. But as the president said at the end of his statement, they have a family here at the White House that they can rely on. So we're going to keep them in our thoughts and prayers certainly in the days ahead."
