Fresh Energy is sad to share that our longtime Science Policy Director J. Drake Hamilton sustained a serious head injury in a fall on the ice February 4. J. is currently recovering from surgery and is in stable condition. In the coming days, she will be undergoing additional tests. Fresh Energy has created a Caring Bridge site for J. and we will be posting updates from her family to share with her many supporters and colleagues.
We all know and love J. for her data-driven, science-based approach to moving Minnesota to a clean energy economy that offers prosperity and opportunity for all and a healthy future for our children. She has done much to elevate Minnesota’s leadership on climate and energy with audiences in the Midwest region, and across the country, and around the world.
Good wishes are flooding in and this community of caring will do much to help J. with her recovery. Please join Fresh Energy in sending healing energy to J. at this challenging time. We know J. has touched so many and people want a chance to wish her well. If you would like to send J. a card or note via Fresh Energy, we will make sure she gets it. Email any good wishes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Postal mail can be sent to our office:

As more information becomes available, we will let you know how we can all support J. and her family. Please refer to J.s Caring Bridge site for ongoing updates. Thank you for your kindness during this difficult time.
