Thursday memorial planned for late staffer Chris Crowe

Crowe, a longtime aide to Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas), died last Wednesday of complications from meningitis. Crowe was 29 years old.

At the time of his death, Crowe was also president of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Congressional Staff Association (LGBT CSA), and his sudden death was a huge shock to members of the LGBT community on Capitol Hill.

The memorial service is planned for noon in the Jefferson Building at the Library of Congress, Room LJ-119. All are welcome.

The Rev. Daniel P. Coughlin, chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives, will participate in the memorial, as will members of Crowe’s family.

ITK sends condolences to all those affected by the tragedy.
