Texas Democrats mourn the loss of James Barnett, the TDP's Data Director, who joined the party in January and passed away a few days ago. An email from Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa is below. Please consider making a contribution to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in James' honor.

On Monday the Texas Democratic Party learned of the passing of James Barnett our Data Director. Words cannot express the sadness we feel from the loss of our colleague and dear friend.

James came to the party in January of this year, having previously served as the Data and Voter File Manager in Nevada. James was a 2004 graduate of Rossville High School, and a 2008 graduate of the University of Evansville. He was an avid sports fan. His favorite teams were the Cardinals, Colts and Pacers and he was a huge fan of college basketball.

But James was most passionate about his job. He worked across this great country to fight for his values through supporting Democratic candidates and causes. As we contemplate his loss, we are thankful for all that he has given us through his love of service to others.

We ask that you keep James in your heart and his family in your prayers. James is survived by his parents Randall and Charlotte and his brothers and sisters Brian, Christopher, Erik, Sarah, Rebekah and Abigail.

The family has asked for memorial donations to be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Our thoughts go out to James' family and all who knew and worked with him.
