Echo Brown Obituary: Final Goodbye to Beautiful Soul
She passed away on September 16 at the age of 39. She left us after a long battle with end-stage renal failure due to lupus. Below we shared a tweet that confirmed the news of her death:
“Losing a bright light so young is devastating. But I am comforted by the fact that Echo believed in miracles. […] She was spiritual and knew better than anyone that souls do not disappear.” —𝘑𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘤𝘢 𝘈𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘰𝘯, 𝘌𝘥𝘪𝘵𝘰𝘳, 𝘊𝘖 𝘉𝘰𝘰𝘬𝘴@TheNovl #EchoBrown pic.twitter.com/1JLzQQphuN

Brown was born in Cleveland on April 10, 1984 and she experienced a rough upbringing there. Brown’s English teacher took her in during her final year so she could continue to do well at John Hay High School; she was the valedictorian of her class.
When Brown graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in political science in 2006, she became the first member of her family to complete college.
Brown’s journey toward becoming a book author was arduous. She began her career by working with a private organization that looked into accusations of wrongdoing against police officers in New York City.
Brown started working as a legal secretary before enrolling in Columbia Graduate School of Journalism’s investigative journalism program.
She moved to California in 2011 to take a job with the organization Challenge Day, which offers anti-bullying and violence-prevention training for high school students, but when that program turned out not to be a suitable fit, she switched coasts.
Brown had to share some of her own life narrative as part of her work as a motivational speaker at Challenge Day, and she soon realized she was good at it. She enrolled in a class taught by director and playwright David Ford at Berkeley’s The Marsh Theater because she wanted to learn more about storytelling.
Brown was also collaborating with actor, producer and director Tyler Perry on her third book, A Jazzman’s Blues which is based on Perry’s original screenplay for a Netflix movie of the same name. Brown was writing this book when she passed away.

Losing a brilliant light at such a young age is terrible. However, I find solace in the knowledge that Echo thought in miracles. She was spiritual and was the best person to know that souls do not vanish.
