Race For Hope DC

Brian's Team

Please help support Brian's Team at the 2022 Race for Hope-DC!
Brian Ames (1957-2017) passed away from gliblastoma multiforme at his home in Bethesda, MD surrounded by his loving family. Brian worked as an economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from 1986 until 2008 and then as an independent development consultant. He loved his travels far and wide and was profoundly committed to making a difference wherever he went. His optimism was eternal, his enthusiasm for life infectious and his sense of humor sublime. He was hard to resist when he turned on the charm and put on "the Brian Ames show," as he called it. He brought humor even to the halls of the IMF! He was a trusted colleague and friend, a loving son and brother, and an absolutely devoted father. Brian was born in La Mesa, CA on April 2, 1957, attended Claremont Men's College (1979), and HBS and the Kennedy School (1985). He succumbed to brain cancer after a 17-month battle, without ever losing hope that he would beat the odds. He is survived by his children Julian (31), Andre (28) and Angela (23); his sister, Susann McMahon and his brother, Alan Ames.
