BREAKING NEWS-TRAVIS COUNTY DEPUTY RECOVERED FROM LAKE

The body of Jessica Hollis, a senior deputy with the Travis County sheriff’s office, was recovered in Lake Austin on Friday after she was swept away at a low water crossing early Thursday morning.

“She touched lives all across the agency,” Sheriff Greg Hamilton said.

Senior Deputy Brett Spicer, president of the Travis County Sheriffs’ Law Enforcement Association, said Hollis was highly regarded at the sheriff’s office as a professional peace officer.

“The people should know that she gave her life — she was out that night patrolling our streets in Travis County — to keep people safe,” Spicer said. “She gave her life protecting others.”

Spicer said the association’s attention will now shift to supporting Hollis’ family, including her 12-year-old son and her husband, an Austin police officer.
