Tracey Adams

Correctional Officer III Tracey Adams died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty at the Mark W. Stiles Unit in Beaumont, Texas.

Officer Adams had served with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for only two months.

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.

I am so sorry to learn of the grievous loss of Correctional Officer Adams when she died in the line of duty from Covid. To the Adams family, fellow officers, and all who call Tracey beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support. I hope that you continue to receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Adams gave to her community and the residents of Texas and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on March 6, 2021
