CHAIRMAN HAKEEM JEFFRIES STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF REP. DONALD MCEACHIN
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Upon the passing of Rep. Donald McEachin (VA-04), House Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) released the following statement:
Our Caucus family is heartbroken that we will return to Washington this week without our dear friend and colleague, Donald McEachin.
Don’s presence will be sorely missed in the Caucus, the Congress and the Commonwealth of Virginia. From his time serving in both chambers of the Virginia legislature to his three terms in Congress, Don brought a servant’s heart, fierce passion and beaming smile to everything that he did. Many of us have been blessed with the opportunity to fight alongside Don during his service on the Energy & Commerce Committee, Committee on Natural Resources and the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, in addition to his leadership within the Congressional Black Caucus.
Brother Don was a proud lifetime member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. As an accomplished attorney, legislator and father, Don truly embodied our motto of “achievement in every field of human endeavor.”
I join the entire Democratic Caucus family in praying for his wife Collette, their three children and all who loved Don. May his memory be a blessing to all who share in this tremendous loss.
