The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office mourns the loss of Deputy Santiago Rodriguez

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Tulsa County Deputy Santiago Rodriguez, who passed away unexpectedly this morning following a medical emergency that occurred while he was off duty.

Deputy Rodriguez was 40 years old. He had been a Deputy at the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office for 14 years. Over the court of his career, Rodriguez received letters of accommodation for his work as a Deputy at the Tulsa County Courthouse. He lived a career of service, not only to the citizens of Tulsa County, but also to his country, through his time as a member of the Navy Reserve.

Dep. Rodriguez was a loving father to his four children. He will be greatly missed by all of his coworkers and friends here at the Sheriff’s Office.

Funeral services are pending.
