In Memoriam

Susan Eazer

September 14, 1962 - January 23, 2023

The Pima County Attorney’s Office honors Susan Eazer’s years of service, an extraordinary prosecutor who served the citizens of Pima, Pinal, and Yavapai Counties for nearly 30 years. Sue was a long-time employee of the Pima County Attorney’s Office, working as both a legal assistant, and after law school, as a trial lawyer. Sue also prosecuted in both Pinal and Yavapai Counties.

Sue was the embodiment of a devoted prosecutor: she gave her all to defend and give voice to the oppressed and harmed, especially to children who were subjected to the most heinous physical and sexual abuse. During her long legal career, Sue prosecuted sexual assaults, homicides, and the most complex and serious crimes.  She handled hundreds of other criminal matters.

Sue was both the recipient of the APAAC Prosecutor of the Year Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award. Because of her life’s work, countless victims and survivors live in a much better place.

Careers

We recruit legal researchers, litigators, and professional staff who use their unique talents to move our Office forward. You’re invited to apply to work for a progressive prosecuting agency that values accountability, public service, and outcomes-driven thinking and provides great incentives, including the option to telecommute multiple days per week, generous time off, and full benefits.
