A PAX East enforcer has died from COVID-19 following being exposed to the virus while working. Dawn Wood, who had worked the gaming convention since 2014, reportedly came home from PAX East “on top of the world” before falling ill. She passed away overnight on Saturday, April 30.
Prior to her death, her mother says she checked in on Woods every day, bringing her “ice tea and supplies.” On Friday, April 29, her mother dropped off dinner and the mail before returning home. When Woods hadn’t called by 3 PM the next day, her mother sent the police to do a wellness check. The officers then discovered Woods body and determined she had passed away overnight.
According to a press comment given to Kotaku by a PAX representative, Dawn was “a warm and welcoming presence, and someone who always took the time to help others. She loved PAX and gaming, she was a voracious reader, and she loved baking, crafting, and sharing her creations with others. Our community is devastated by her loss and she will be sorely missed.”
