A remarkable human being passed away on May 22, 2023, and his family, friends, community, and the world will miss his intellect, his humor, his humanity, and his dedication to making the world a better place.
Adam J. Rubinson of Washington, DC, passed away from an aggressive and insidious form of brain cancer, leaving his beloved and beloving wife, Susan P. Weinstein Rubinson, and his two cherished children, Alex and Natasha. He also left behind his loving mother and sister, Gloria Rosengarten and Lori Rubinson.
Adam loved his family, and nothing made him happier than their yearly trip to Cape May or their weekly Friday night dinners with his mother. He was so proud of his children and their accomplishments and was so pleased with what wonderful people they were developing into. He and Susan were best friends and supportive partners, and enjoyed spending their days together, reveling in each other’s company, always laughing.
A graduate of Princeton University and New York University School of Law, Adam was a Managing Director at Deloitte, having created its District of Columbia State & Local Practice. Previously, he was the Deputy Director of DC’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer, managed a successful DC mayoral campaign, and advised many current and former DC city council members.
Adam tirelessly volunteered on many Boards, lending his time and intellect to organizations such as the Capital Jewish Museum, the American Jewish Committee, the DC Chamber of Commerce, and various DEI groups – all the time with tikkum olam (repairing and improving the world) driving him.
Using positive superlatives is truly the only way to correctly describe Adam. He was an extraordinarily smart, funny, thoughtful, loyal father, husband, friend, brother, and son.
Funeral services will be held on Wednesday May 24th at 1:00pm at Adas Israel Congregation in DC, with interment immediately following at Judean Gardens in Olney MD. The family will be observing Shiva immediately following burial as well as Thursday from 2:00-6:30pm, at the Rubinson Family Home. Adam’s last wish was for his friends and colleagues to donate to his children’s college educations by going to https://www.gofundme.com/f/rubinson-family-fundraiser.
