From a Washington Post obit headlined “Christopher Shea, Washington Post editor, dies at 53”:

Christopher Shea, a Washington Post editor who specialized in assigning and editing news essays and analysis for the Outlook section in print and PostEverything section online, died July 24. He was a resident of Silver Spring, Md. His sister, Nancy O’Driscoll, said he had depression and died by suicide.

Mr. Shea was described by his sister as an intellectual who was drawn to books and ideas and was less animated by the prospect of traditional beat reporting. He joined The Post in 2018 after a year running the Perspectives section at Vox.com in Washington and an earlier career contributing to the opinion and reviews sections of the Boston Globe and Wall Street Journal.
