In Memoriam: Steven LaTourette



CLEVELAND (August 3, 2016) – We are deeply saddened to report that former Congressman Steve LaTourette has lost his courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Steve was our dear colleague and friend. We greatly admired his wisdom and wit. Steve was always the voice of insight, moderation and constructive compromise. The McDonald Hopkins family grieves this loss. Our hearts and prayers go out to Steve's wife Jennifer, their two young children, Steve's adult children, and the entire LaTourette family. 

After 18 years in Congress, Steve became President of our new Washington, D.C. subsidiary, McDonald Hopkins Government Strategies (MHGS), in 2013. He and his wife, Jennifer, who is vice president of MHGS, have built a respected  government relations and lobbying organization with a team of experienced professionals who provide strategic advice and assistance at the federal government level. 


Steve’s biography and the news release issued in 2013 are below.
