Matt went to be with Jesus about 4:00 this afternoon.
He had been struggling with isolation from Covid, pain from back issues, and lack of sleep for several weeks from a new construction around his house. He also just started some pain meds. I was with him Tuesday evening.

He took his life.

We are all processing and doing as well as expected. Jackie, his wife, is struggling but strong.

Matt received Christ at a young age and truly cultivated that relationship with all the ups and downs of life. We know that Matt is with Jesus, enjoying a life of no pain and suffering and clear perspective on this world.
He loved his ISB friends and family! If you are struggling, please don’t do it alone! We want to help!

Our Celebration Service for Matt Beckham will be held on Wednesday, November 4 at 5:45 PM at The Encourager Church. The church is located at 10950 Katy Freeway, Houston, Texas 77043. We will also LIVESTREAM the service via Facebook.

There will be a reception for everyone following the service to meet with Jackie, family, and friends.

To support Jackie financially during this time her VENMO is @JackieBeckham or you can give to The Encourager Church designating the funds for Matt and Jackie Beckham Funeral and Expenses. VENMO does not provide a tax deduction but The Encourager Church will provide one. If you would like to send flowers, please send them directly to The Encourager Church for Jackie Beckham. Whether you join in person, via LIVESTREAM or in prayers and Spirit, we appreciate all the support we have received during this difficult time. You are loved and we feel your love!

Here is a beautiful song Matt wrote and performs that expresses his heart and our heart:

Please share this post so others can celebrate with us!

Dear ISB Friends, it is with heavy heart that I announce the passing of Matt Beckham (Class of ’87), my best friend and fellow ISB actor. I am here to celebrate his amazing life. He touched so many with his humor, zaniness, and genuine sincerity. Take care, buddy. You are going to put on a great show up there. Save me a seat in the front row.
