Gov. Tim Walz has ordered all United States flags and Minnesota flags to be flown at half-staff at all state buildings in the State of Minnesota, from sunrise until sunset on Friday, Dec. 31, 2021, in honor and remembrance of Deputy Sheriff Jayme Williams.

“Deputy Sheriff Williams was a dedicated public servant who was respected by his family, friends, and colleagues,” reads the proclamation issued by Walz. “With its deepest gratitude, the State of Minnesota recognizes Deputy Sheriff Williams for his dedicated service to, and sacrifice for, his fellow Minnesotans, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and entire community.”

Williams dedicated 13 years to the Itasca County Sheriff’s Department. Deputy Williams died Monday, Dec. 27, 2021, due to a medical illness obtained during line of duty service. He is survived by his wife and three children.

At the direction of the governor, Minnesota flies its flags at half-staff following the death of Minnesota first responders fallen in the line of duty. Individuals, businesses, and other organizations are also encouraged to join in lowering their flags.
