For Immediate Release: March 31, 2021
Today, Congressman Pete Sessions (TX-17) released the following statement regarding the passing of Trooper Chad Walker:
"Even in his final moments, Trooper Chad Walker pledged his life to the betterment of others by donating an organ—a gift of life. Trooper Walker was a husband and father of four with much life left to live. This was a young man on a mission to create a better future for his family for generations. Unfortunately, his story shows the real danger those of law enforcement face every day. When officers proudly put on the uniform, they step into a role of risk.
"Let this tragedy remind all of the sacrifice and bravery law enforcement officers demonstrate in the line of duty. We are privileged to have men and women who dedicate their lives to protect the public. We must defend and support our communities’ heroes. Please take the time to thank your local law enforcement and keep the family of Trooper Walker in your prayers."
