It is with a great deal of sadness that we inform our members and fellow state employees of the passing of former TSEA Board Member Donald Burnette.
Donald was a member of TSEA since 1996. He will be remembered by many as a passionate advocate for state employees, especially those he served in his TSEA district while serving on our board of directors. As a member of TSEA, Donald held the offices of Chapter Treasurer, Chapter Vice President, Chapter President, and District 12 Director. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Heidi, his family, and his friends.
