How did Tamara Zalud die?
Tamara has passed away and her death was announced by her husband on a social media page she created. He announced on Repeal the Texas Driver Responsibility Program page where he wrote;
This post comes with a very heavy heart.
Tamara Zalud, the founder of this page and my wife, passed overnight.
She lived her life with a passion for helping other people who were underrepresented and fighting for what was morally right.

Tamara Faye Zalud, 35 of Webster, Texas went to be with our Lord on October 7th, 2020. Tamara was born March 25th 1985 in Houston, Texas, the daughter of Carol Jeanette (Sanders) and Steven Lonny Shippy. She was baptized at Sagemont Church and grew up in Deer Park, Texas. She married her high school sweetheart and husband of 10 years, Nicholas Joseph Zalud, on May 22nd, 2010.
Tamara had a strong faith in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She delighted in numerous forms of peaceful activism desiring to help people and make our world a better place. In her profession as a campaign manager, she was held in high regards amongst her peers and worked tirelessly to be the best in her field. She had a special place in her heart for dogs, especially her baby, Puppy. She was a gifted photographer with an ability to capture the raw emotions and personal moments between people preserving memories that would last them a lifetime. One of Tamara’s greatest loves was being at the beach or on the water with friends and loved ones; she enjoyed soaking up the sun, surfing the waves, fishing, and bringing back copious amounts of sand on the car ride home.
In addition to her husband and parents, she is survived by her Nona, Kathleen Lucille Shippy of Friendswood, Texas, brother and his spouse, Tyler Wade and Angelica Garrison of Houston, Texas, sister, her spouse, niece, and nephew, Jennifer Nicole, Donovan, Mary, and Steven Young of League City, Texas as well as her Granny and Grandpa Dauenhauer, Grandma Delores, Grandpa Shippy, and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
She will be missed greatly. Family and friends are comforted knowing that when she closed her beautiful eyes for the last time her suffering ended and she is now comforted in her Savior’s arms.

The lovers of liberty have lost a dear friend. Although I’ve known Tamara Zalud since grade school, it was in the last ten years we became friends. She was my first campaign manager and as such she never shied from speaking her mind or telling me when I was wrong. Tamara was like a family member—poking fun and arguing like siblings came with the territory. She taught me that Ron Paul was right and not crazy. She never met a stranger, was often the life of the party, and contributed countless hours, often without pay, advocating for causes she cared about or working campaigns.
While my wife and I are of course deeply saddened by the loss of her life, I had many occasions to talk to Tamara about Christ, and know with certainty that she knew Him as her Savior.
Her highschool sweetheart and husband, Nick Zalud, is in need of our prayers and support.

At 8 am today I received a Facebook message that I never thought I would receive. It was a friend telling me a mutual friend, Tamara Zalud, had passed away early this morning. I am still numb from this which is why it’s taking so long for me to write this.
When I heard the news, I kept thinking this must some kind of joke, some elaborate hoax, maybe Tam was messing with us. I looked at her Facebook page and saw a post she made just last night. Surely she was still with us. No one had posted any kind of condolence message on her Facebook page. Facebook messenger said she was active just a few hours before. This has to be a mistake. This couldnt happen. Not to Tamara.
But sadly, it’s real. This afternoon, messages started popping up on her page from friends, family and elected officeholders she once helped to elect. It was real. Now in a tangible way.
Tamara was one of my absolute favorite people, not just in the political world, but in general. We worked together on a couple of campaigns. We talked almost weekly about everything under the sun: work, stress, women in my life, our dogs, the future of politics, our shared love of the beach. Everything. She always congratulated me on my successes and I celebrated her successes with her.
It’s very real. My friend is no longer here. Just this past weekend she called me but I was out block walking and later sent her a message to see how she was doing. She never responded. There would have been time this week for us to have one of conversations. Sadly, that will never happen.
To my dear friend, Tamara, we love you. Always and forever. We miss you already.

2020 has been rough on everyone. I learned last night of another person that ended their life. Your friends are not okay. Check in on them. Just give them a call. That could save a life. Rest in Peace Tamara Zalud.

Today I was saddened to learn of the loss of one my favorite Politcal-campaigning friends.
I thought I knew a lot about “grassroots” campaigning until I met Tamara Zalud. I learned a lot from her and was grateful she was in my life, even though it was a short time. Tamara I will miss your random text messages asking me to come block walk with you for some candidate I have never heard of!!
Until we meet again my friend.
