In Memoriam: Richard M. DeVos

Statement of Jeffrey Rosen, President and CEO of the National Constitution Center

All of us at the National Constitution Center are terribly sad to learn of Richard DeVos’s passing. He was a great American and a great patriot whose love of the Constitution was profound and whose belief in American values was extraordinary. For more than a decade, Rich devoted his time and treasure to advancing the National Constitution Center’s mission of constitutional education for all. Rich was also an entrepreneur, a man of faith, and a husband, father, and grandfather deeply devoted to his family. His humility and positivity inspired us all. We are grateful every day for his vision, optimism, and faith in freedom, America, and the Constitution, and send our deepest condolences to the DeVos family.
