Pelosi Statement on the Loss of Ed Lorenzen


Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement on the loss of longtime House staffer Ed Lorenzen and his 5-year-old son, Michael:

“Today, the House community mourns the tragic loss of a cherished former staffer, Ed Lorenzen and his 5-year-old son, Michael.  His loss is a profound professional and personal loss for our nation.

“Ed’s remarkable career on the Hill spanned two decades.  Working as a Legislative Director to former Congressman Charlie Stenholm and as a Senior Policy Advisor to then House Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer, Ed brought unparalleled knowledge, pragmatism and humor to his work on the federal budget.  His wit and brilliance were a treasure to all who had the privilege of knowing him.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kellie, their children and to all those who knew and cared for Ed and Michael.  May their memory continue to be a blessing to all who knew them and may their family take comfort in knowing that so many share in their grief at this terrible time.”
