WASHINGTON, DC - It is with deep sorrow that TSA announces the passing of Alberto Camacho, a Branch Manager in the Acquisition Program Management office, on April 3, 2020 after contracting COVID-19. Camacho is the second federal TSA employee to pass away following a COVID-19 diagnosis.

For over 20 years Camacho dedicated his career to both transportation and aviation security, and his contributions to TSA and our mission will not be forgotten. 

Camacho first joined the TSA family in 2005 as a Training Manager in San Francisco, and held positions in Security Operations, the Federal Air Marshal Service and Enterprise Support. He last served as the Central Region Deployment Branch Manager at the TSA Systems Integration Facility in Arlington, VA, where he oversaw the successful implementation of TSA’s passenger and baggage technologies. Every day, he worked closely with TSA’s partners to ensure the nation’s aviation security technology remained cutting edge and ahead of the threat.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to Camacho’s family, friends and his TSA colleagues.

TSA remains committed and determined to work ever more closely with interagency partners to stop the spread of COVID-19.
