The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced the sad loss of Dual Function Transportation Security Officer (TSO) Ira Lerman. He worked at Boston Logan International Airport and passed away on January 24 following a COVID-19 infection.
Lerman joined TSA in 2008 as a TSO at Boston Logan after an extensive career in finance in the Boston area. A native of Plymouth, Mass., he was well-known and appreciated for his dedication to the TSA mission.
The following day, TSO Robert Jasinski passed away following a COVID-19 infection. He worked at Philadelphia International Airport, joining in 2006, and served as one of TSA’s dedicated baggage officers. Jasinski also served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Homeland Security Today joins TSA in offering our heartfelt condolences to officer Lerman’s and officer Jasinski’s family, friends and colleagues.
