My only child, Luke Orth Russert, is my and his late fathers’ pride and joy. For eight years, Luke worked at NBC News on Capitol Hill. After much thought, he left NBC and in September of 2016 began extensive travel around the globe, an experience he was not able to have because of the sudden death of his father in 2008. Luke and I have traveled together in both Latin America and Sicily. Next stop Africa! It has been a joy to see Luke become a global citizen and I can’t wait for what he decides to do next. Luke has always loved history, politics, music and sports. Like his mom, he enjoys life!
