The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) mourns the passing of another member of the TSA family. Robert Logan, Jr., a Transportation Security Officer at Boise Air Terminal (BOI) in Idaho, passed away Thursday, after contracting COVID-19.

Logan joined TSA in 2019 and had a background working with hazardous materials. He gained certification as a dual-function officer and became an integral part of the TSA team at Boise. The 27th employee to pass away following a COVID-19 illness, he will be fondly remembered for his dedication to the transportation security mission and greatly missed by his colleagues.
