Mike Gill was a former public official and lawyer who served as the chief of staff for former CFTC Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo. He died in 2024 five days after being shot in a carjacking incident in Washington, DC while waiting to pick up his wife. He was 56. [1][2]

At the time of his death, Gill served as senior vice president for capital markets at the Housing Policy Council, a nonprofit.

He was married and a father of three. [3]

Background[edit]

Gill's work history included roles as senior vice president at Crowell & Moring LLP, executive director at AFFI (American Frozen Food Institute), and experience as press secretary and legislative aide for U.S. Representative Paul Gillmor in Ohio's 5th District.

He also served with the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission under Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

In a statement after Gill's death, former CFTC Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo said Gill played a pivotal role in several significant initiatives, including the establishment of Project KISS, aimed at reducing regulatory burdens and costs, the creation of LabCFTC to promote understanding of digital assets and financial technology, and the development of the Market Intelligence Branch for monitoring emerging market trends. Gill was directly involved in the CFTC's implementation of "heightened scrutiny" for cryptocurrencies, culminating in the launch of the first regulated U.S. cryptocurrency market, bitcoin futures, in 2017.[4]

In addition to his professional career, he was actively involved in his community, serving on the Washington, D.C. Board of Elections for three terms, coaching his daughter's youth soccer team, and participating in the parish council at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Northwest Washington.

Education[edit]

Gill held a Bachelor of Arts in economics from the University of Dayton.[5] He also held a Master of Arts from Johns Hopkins University and a Doctor of Law (J.D.) degree from The Catholic University of America.
