As Twitchy told you this morning, the Michael Brown funeral in Ferguson, Missouri, is underway. Joining Jesse Jackson and hundreds of mourners, media, and opportunists:

White House officials Broderick Johnson, Marlon Marshall, and Heather Foster:

According to a White House official, Broderick Johnson, who heads the White House’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force, will attend the service along with Marlon Marshall, a St. Louis native who attended high school with Brown’s mother. Heather Foster, who works with Marshall in the White House Office of Public Engagement, will also be in the pews at Brown’s funeral.

Some Twitter users wondered where White House officials were for other recent funerals.
