Detective Wayne Jones, "the nicest guy" in the words of historian and activist Judith Berdy, died from the coronavirus, RIOC announced today. He was a public servant on Roosevelt for 24 years, longer than most of us have lived here. Following is RIOC's statement:

"We regret to inform you of the passing of Detective Wayne Jones, a 24-year veteran of the Public Safety Department (PSD). He leaves behind a wife and two children. He was an integral part of the department and he will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege to know him and work with him. 

"Detective Jones is the second PSD member to pass away from the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please keep Detective Jones, Officer Corey Fischer, and all those affected by this pandemic in your thoughts and prayers."

As we wrote with the passing of Officer Fischer, the coronavirus is an enemy none of these officers signed on to battle. It's more fierce and the dangers much greater.

Please keep him in your thoughts, prayers and memory.
