Officer Jack Nyce, 47, worked for the police department for more than 17 years. He was most recently assigned to Park Station, SF Police Chief Bill Scott said in a statement.
Scott didn’t comment on the cause of death, but his wife, Melissa Nyce, told the Stockton Record that he tested positive for coronavirus on November 2 and later went to the hospital with complications from the virus. He died in a Kaiser hospital in Manteca, where he and his wife lived.
“Nyce was among 41 officers who were furloughed for failing to meet the city’s Nov. 1 immunization deadline,” NBC Bay Area reported.
The San Francisco Police Officers Association honored Nyce in a statement.
“Our heartfelt condolences go out to Jack’s wife, family and friends,” said Tony Montoya, president of the association. “This is a sad time for our department. Jack leaves a void that will be difficult to fill. Rest in peace, Officer Nyce.”
SFPD said it will share more information about plans for Nyce’s memorial as it becomes available. “In the meantime, please keep Jack, his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time,” Scott said.
