Baby Jayce Osteen was born November 22, 2021 to Deputies Clayton Osteen and Victoria Pacheco of the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office. Clayton and Victoria were joy-filled, first-time parents excited about their growing family, enamored with their baby Jayce, and so in love with each other. Tragically, for reasons completely unknown and totally out of character, Clayton took his own life December 31st, 2021. Reeling from the shock of loss, Victoria took her own life two days later.
Deputies Clayton Osteen (age 24) and Victoria Pacheco (age 23) selflessly served the citizens of St. Lucie County, Florida. Clayton was Deputy of the Year, 2020, and was a SWAT team member. Clayton also served in the United States Marine Corps. Jayce’s parents proudly served their country and community. Baby Jayce now needs the support of community and country to help provide for him going forward.
The families of Clayton and Victoria are so grateful for all prayers and support received. A close family member will be adopting Jayce. All donations will be used for enriching Jayce's life experiences and securing a brighter future.
