BREAKING: Man Found Dead Near Obamas’ Martha’s Vineyard Estate ID’ed As Personal Chef of Former President


The body of a missing paddleboarder was found in a pond on Martha’s Vineyard on Monday, and Massachusetts State Police have now identified him as Tafari Campbell, an employee of former President Barack Obama and his family.

Campbell, 45 years old and from Dumfries, Virginia, was visiting Martha’s Vineyard when the apparent accident occurred. The recovery took place in Edgartown Great Pond, situated along the island’s southern coast, and was reported shortly before 10 a.m.

According to state police, Campbell had been working for the former president and was considered a cherished member of the Obama family.

The Obamas were not present on the island at the time of the incident. They released a statement on Monday afternoon expressing their grief over the loss of Campbell:

“Tafari was a beloved part of our family. When we first met him, he was a talented sous chef at the White House – creative and passionate about food, and its ability to bring people together. In the years that followed, we got to know him as a warm, fun, extraordinarily kind person who made all of our lives a little brighter. That’s why, when we were getting ready to leave the White House, we asked Tafari to stay with us, and he generously agreed. He’s been part of our lives ever since, and our hearts are broken that he’s gone.

Today we join everyone who knew and loved Tafari – especially his wife Sherise and their twin boys, Xavier and Savin – in grieving the loss of a truly wonderful man.”
