Tuesday, November 17, 2020

DENVER – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announces and deeply mourns the loss of Denver International Airport (DEN) Transportation Security Officer (TSO) Eduard Faktorovich, who passed away on November 16, 2020, after contracting COVID-19.

Eduard joined TSA at DEN in late April 2018, and worked exclusively at the checkpoint. His last date on-duty at the checkpoint was November 2, 2020.  His colleagues remember him as a kind and respectful person, who always had a smile on his face.  Although Eduard was with TSA for only two and half years, the entire team at DEN is saddened by the loss of one their own. 

TSA offers its sincerest condolences to Officer Faktorovich’s family, friends and his TSA colleagues. His death is a reminder to all of us at TSA of the ongoing seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic. We remain committed to continuing to take every precaution to help protect our workforce as well as airline travelers.
