Florida Correctional Officer Sgt. Jorge Ramos died Sunday afternoon, two days after participating in a statewide Correctional Emergency Response Team (CERT) competition at Sumter Correctional Institution, reports WJXT.

Ramos, 30, joined the Florida Department of Corrections in August 2007 and worked at the South Florida Reception Center. As a member of the CERT, he was tasked with responding to security emergencies and ensuring the safety of all staff and inmates within the institution.

The cause of his death was still under investigation.

Ramos is survived by his wife and young daughter.

"Ann and I join all Floridians and the Florida Department of Corrections in mourning the loss of Jorge Ramos," Gov. Rick Scott said. "As a member of the SFRC Correctional Emergency Response Team, Sgt. Ramos routinely went above and beyond the call of duty. The State of Florida is truly grateful for his dedicated service to public safety."
