I ask everyone to respect their privacy.” – Catherine Hanaway

With his passing, Missouri has lost a devoted public servant. He will be missed.” - State Treasurer Clint Zweifel

"Tom Schweich was a devoted public servant that I feel fortunate to have gotten to know as a friend and colleague over the past few years. Whether he was serving as our State Auditor, the U.S. Coordinator for Counternarcotics and Justice Reform in Afghanistan, or working at the State Department, Tom always fought tirelessly for the people he was serving. Anyone who had a conversation with Tom knew how dedicated he was to his service. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Kathy and his children Emilie and Thomas, Jr." - Secretary of State Jason Kander

The First Lady and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Tom's wife Kathy and two children, Emilie and Thomas, Jr.” - Governor Jay Nixon
