Jamaal Rolle wrote on his Facebook page on 25 August 2018: After successfully completing a commissioned portrait for senator John McCain and his wife Cindy in 2014, Senator McCain invited me to his office on Capitol Hill Washington DC, where we discussed various topics highlighting the importance of art and interconnection. This experience was enlightening and definitely a highlight in my career.
Rest in Peace Senator John McCain, American Hero.
