Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Maryland, announced that his 25-year-old son Thomas Bloom Raskin has died. The cause of his death is unknown.

Thomas Raskin was a second-year student at Harvard Law School and a graduate of Amherst College.

“Tommy was pure magic. His brilliance and compassion knew no bounds,” Raskin said in a statement. “He passionately loved his family, friends, and animals, and was devoted to the cause of the global poor. We are devastated and demolished to be without him.”

Raskin is completing his second term in Congress.
