Blake Brewer

CEO, Founder Legacy Letter Challenge

At 19 years old, Blake Brewer was on a family vacation in Hawaii when one of the best moments of his life turned tragic.  He was snorkeling with his dad when they got separated in rough waters.  By the time he was able to get back to his dad, he was underwater and unconscious. He got him back to shore, but it was too late. His dad had drowned.  Only hours after his dad’s death, while questioning how he was going to make it without him, Brewer’s mom found a letter in his dad’s briefcase that he had written to his children. “Apparently my dad had been working on this letter for several months, having no idea he was about to die,” founder of The Legacy Letter Challenge, Blake Brewer, says. “So, I’m reading this letter and I felt so loved that my dad would put on paper and take the time to do that, how he feels about us, and give us some advice, and write this letter.”  He says the letter was exactly what he needed in that moment and helped him get through that time in his life. He says it gave him hope and direction and helped him know he was going to make it.  Blake is on a mission to help 1 million dads and moms write at least one well written, meaningful, lasting Legacy Letter to their children. Blake has a wonderful wife and loves being a father to his three children, all under 8. As he leads his family, he draws from many mentors, but none more important than his late father, Larry Brewer.
