Joseph A. Martini

Corrections Officer Joseph Martini died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 during a presumed exposure while on duty at the Ulster County Jail.

Officer Martini had served with the Ulster County Sheriff's Office for 22 years. He is survived by his two children and parents.

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.
