J. David Kuo, Who Split From Bush Faith Effort, Dies at 44
By MICHAEL D. SHEAR
Published: April 6, 2013

WASHINGTON — J. David Kuo, an evangelical Christian who served as a leader in President George W. Bush’s faith initiative but later became a critic, died on Friday. He was 44.

Mr. Kuo’s family announced his death on his Facebook page on Saturday.

“Last night at 10:25 our beloved David found his reward in heaven, with his savior Jesus Christ,” the family wrote. “With a peaceful last breath, he won his courageous 10-year battle against brain cancer.”

As deputy director of Mr. Bush’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, Mr. Kuo was instrumental in implementing Mr. Bush’s promise to link the nation’s religious groups with the delivery of social services.

Campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination in 1999, Mr. Bush promised to invigorate “a civil society,” telling The Washington Post that he would encourage churches and charities to be “little armies of compassion.” The faith-based office was the result of that promise.
