RIP, Jody Powell

Sep 14, 2009 4:59pm

ABC News has learned that former White House press secretary Jody Powell has died.

This afternoon at his house on the Eastern Shore in Maryland, Powell had an apparent heart attack, a family friend said.

The former press secretary for President Jimmy Carter was the CEO of the PR firm Powell Tate. He was 65.

Powell and the late Hamilton Jordan, Carter's chief of staff, were WH "whiz Kids" on a Rolling Stone cover in 1977. I doubt Carter thought he’d outlive both of them.
