Reggie Love, President Barack Obama‘s personal assistant and “First Brother” is resigning his position to attend business school at the University Of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School Of Business.
Love, who played basketball for Duke University, has been working for Obama since 2006 when Obama was a senator.
ABC News reports:
Love said he felt fortunate to be a “very long passenger on an amazing ride.” But it’s the mundane things about the job he will cherish most. On most nights, as Obama leaves the Oval Office for the second-floor residence, he pops his head into Love’s office for a quick briefing on the next day’s schedule and then says goodnight.
“I know definitely I’m going to miss that,” Love said. “He’s been like big brother to me, a mentor. I’ve learned so much about life from him. I’ve spent most of my adult life working for him, so it’s going to be a challenge. A pretty big challenge.”
