He was a senior technology adviser to Megan Smith, the chief technology officer at the White House. He died while doing what he'd always done - supporting a friend in a cancer charity ride.He is survived by his wife, Mary Katharine Brewer, his daughter, Georgia Brewer, his mother, Lori Collins, his stepfather, Craig Collins; his father, Tom Brewer, his stepmother, Kim Brewer; his sisters, Britt Reynolds and Chelsea Brewer; and his brother-in-law, Andrew Reynolds.

We are the Niethammer's from Freeland, MI. Jake's first home was next door to us. His grandparents sold us some land to build our home in 1997. The new one on the way will have some good DNA. So sorry for your loss.
