In Memoriam

While we celebrate all we accomplished together across two winning campaigns and eight years of governing, we also take time to remember those who fought for change but are no longer with us. On this page, we honor the Obama alumni who have passed away and we rededicate ourselves to continuing the work that we first started together.

If there are other alumni who are missing here, please submit them here: Obama Alumni In Memoriam Submission Form.
