Boston letter carrier passes away while delivering his route

NALC is deeply saddened to learn that 54-year old letter carrier and Branch 34 member James Wu passed away August 18, 2020, while delivering his route. Brother Wu worked at the Newton Center Post Office in Boston, where he was also an on-the-job instructor. On the day of his death he was training a new employee when he suffered a cardiac event, became unresponsive, and unfortunately was unable to be resuscitated.

"On behalf of the NALC, we mourn the loss of Brother Wu," NALC President Fredric Rolando said. "Earlier this year, James celebrated 14 years of service with USPS and he dedicated many of those years to training new employees how to be professional letter carriers. He served them, as well his customers, very well. We send our thoughts and prayers to Brother Wu’s family, friends, coworkers, and loved ones.”
