Friday, September 17, 2021

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) mourns the passing of another member of the TSA family. Henry Campania, a Transportation Security Officer (TSO) at McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas, Nevada, passed away after contracting COVID-19.

Campania had been with TSA since 2002. He began his TSA career at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) in Honolulu, HI, before moving to LAS in September of 2017. He will be fondly remembered for his kindhearted spirit and desire to make a difference each and every day. The entire LAS community is heartbroken by the loss.

 TSA has now had 28 employees pass away after contracting COVID-19 and urges all employees to get vaccinated and follow CDC guidance, including face mask recommendations. We offer our heartfelt condolences to Campania’s family, friends and colleagues.
