James Scott LaRue

Sergeant James LaRue died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in a presumed exposure.

Sergeant LaRue was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. He had served with the Seminole County Sheriff's Office for 21 years and was assigned to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility. He is survived by his wife and four children.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
