My heart is heavy mourning the loss of Vernon Jordan. He was a civil rights legend and someone I had the honor of knowing & loving throughout my life. I will miss our conversations about everything, from his life to the best hymns to the best eggnog recipe. Rest in power, Vernon.

Like so many others, Michelle and I benefited from Vernon Jordan's wise counsel and warm friendship—and deeply admired his tireless fight for civil rights. We hope the memory of his extraordinary presence and the legacy of his work bring comfort to Ann, Vickee, and his family.
