Yes, it's inappropriate.

That's not an appropriate function for such a gesture. I'm not sure if you are even allowed to give cash to him or his family directly anyway since he is a Congressman. Definitely ask first, a donation towards his favorite charity or cause might be a more appropriate gesture.
