Dex was the epitome of a federal agent, in his dress, demeanor, and character. You knew he was in the room from his smile and laugh. I appreciate Dex for being a friend during our time together at US Embassy Kingston. To Andrea and his family, I pray the many memories of Dex bring you peace during the rough patches. One thing I know without a doubt is Dex loved his family.

One Love!

Biography

Dextan Estevan Dixon (Dex), was God’s final gift to Livingstone and Ena Dixon of Mandeville, Jamaica. He came into this world 24 March 1968, and died in his adopted home of Houston, Texas on 24 December 2019.  Dex was raised in his birthplace of Lincoln, Manchester, Jamaica until his migration to Rochester, New York in 1979 at the age of 11. His early education was at Hatfield Elementary School in Jamaica, and later at the Rochester public schools, in Western New York.   Dex went on to receive his Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from Buffalo State College where he also excelled as an athlete, specializing in track and earned his induction in the college’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002. His zeal for advanced education and leadership training led him to the Joint Forces Staff College, Norfolk, Virginia where he attained his Master of Science in Joint Campaign Planning and Strategy in 2010.

After attaining his undergraduate degree, Dex worked briefly in construction and the banking industry before recognizing his true calling, law enforcement.  His law enforcement career spans over 25 years and began in 1994 with the New York State Police, which he would flaunt as five of the most interesting years of his career. It was here that he met and established a lifelong friendship with his Trainer, Trooper Noel Nelson.  In 1998 Dex made his transition to federal law enforcement, thereby fulfilling another passion. He proudly and enthusiastically served in various capacities within the Department of Homeland Security as a Special Agent, Supervisory Special Agent, and most recently, ICE Country Attaché in Kingston Jamaica. 

Dex, who was very personable, boasted the most gregarious laughter one could imagine. His contagious persona endeared him to all who encountered him and sought his services.  His most memorable, life-changing moment occurred in 1998 when he married the love of his life, Andrea {Andrews}, in Rochester, New York. Andrea quickly became his rock, and provided him with stellar support in every endeavor, impacting his personal and career decisions. Their union produced two wonderful children, Vanessa and Felicia. Dex’s passion for family, friendship and sacrifice was renowned, and he was always grateful for the opportunity’s others had afforded him in his quest for excellence. He lived by the mantra ‘paying it forward’ which he so often demonstrated in his random acts of kindness, always looking out for the common man or the marginalized, demonstrating a genuine love and commitment to helping others. He believed in excellence, perseverance, proficiency, and going above and beyond the call of duty. Dex was never confused by his call to duty as a servant of God or the people.  Of all his assignments, his return to tackle the harsh realities of crime in his homeland Jamaica ignited his soul.  

Dex leaves to cherish his memory: his beloved wife Andrea; daughters Vanessa and her husband Miles, and Felicia.  He also leaves behind parents Livingstone and Ena Dixon; brothers: Glenford and wife June, Everton and wife Mazie, Lynton and wife Diane; sisters: Carron and husband Winston, Sandra and husband Owen, and Maureen, Ann-Marie and husband David.  He will also be missed by his many nieces and nephews, caring in-laws, uncles, aunts, along with countless other family and friends whom were blessed to know him.

He has touched the lives of many people with his infectious smile, personality and generosity; and maintained his trademark sense of humor all the way to the end.  His total commitment to God, Country and Family mimics the greatest traits a Law Enforcer and Special Agent can possess. He will be dearly missed by all. Dextan Dixon has left our world a far better place than he had found it.
