After getting recruited as an associate communications director for the White House, Tyler Cherry garnered criticism all over the internet for his past social media posts where he made ‘anti-Israel and anti-police remarks.’

As an anti-semantic group urged his termination from his position, Tyler must have felt it was an obstacle to his rising career. So, he removed ‘nearly 25,000 old tweets from his Twitter between Sunday and Monday,’ Foxnews reports.

He then tweeted a clarification of his previous action: “Past social media posts from when I was younger do not reflect my current views, Period. I support this Administration’s agenda—and will continue.”

Meanwhile, far from every controversy, he appears to be living a content life with his husband, Jakob Michael Stronko, whom he married on October 1, 2022. The couple tied the knot in front of 100 attendees in Washington.

The white House official, Tyler Cherry, who is openly gay, met his future husband Jakob in 2014 while visiting Nellie’s Sports Bar in the U Street Corridor in Washington.

Jakob first became attracted to Tyler and instantly offered him a drink. The two spent the remaining evening chatting and left the place with a plan to meet the next day for crepes.

Likewise, they started having frequent meetings and eventually fell in love with each other.

Tyler was a final-year student at U.C.L.A. at the time, so the two stayed in a long-distance relationship for a while. In this regard, Tyler’s partner once told the New York Times, “We felt like we had accomplished something, that we had grown stronger because of the distance.”

After that, they remained in a live-in relationship for a while and eventually tied the knot with the family’s consensus from both sides.

Like Tyler, his partner Jakob is also a government official. He is ‘an international programs specialist at the Department of the Navy in Washington.’

White House official Tyler Cherry is originally from Los Angeles

As mentioned on his LinkedIn, Tyler Cherry was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He also chose his native place for higher education.

He enrolled at the University of California in 2011 and graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor’s in political science, civic management, and gender studies.

After completing his studies, he started his career as a researcher for Media Matters for America and later worked there as a campaign associate.

In November 2017, Tyler joined Public Relations and Communications Services, SKDK, as an associate in public affairs. After a year, he was promoted to senior associate and then director.
