Wilmington, DE – Governor Markell extended his deepest sympathies to the family of James Brady, former White House Press Secretary, someone the Governor knew and admired over many years.

“My heart goes out to Sarah and the Brady family. I first met Jim in 1979, when we shared a small office while I was serving as an intern to Sen. William Roth in Washington, D.C. Jim was a wonderful person with a great sense of humor. Later in life, I was honored to reconnect with Jim as he and Sarah made their home in Sussex County for many years.  Jim’s grit and determination were always evident.  

“This is a difficult loss, but those close to him can take solace in knowing the legacy he built through his advocacy work will have a lasting impact on our country and will surely inspire future generations.”
