Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md) announced on Thursday night that his son Thomas Bloom Raskin has died at just 25.
He was a graduate of Amherst College and was in his second year of law school at Harvard.
“Tommy was pure magic. His brilliance and compassion knew no bounds. He passionately loved his family, friends, and animals, and was devoted to the cause of the global poor. We are devastated and demolished to be without him,” Rep. Raskin and his wife Sarah said in a statement.
The statement did not list a cause of death.
Thomas is survived by his parents Jamie Raskin and Sarah Bloom Raskin. His sisters Hannah and Tabitha, grandparents Arlene Bloom and Lynn Raskin as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
