What a tragic tale this is.
I’ll admit that when I first read this article, I didn’t realize the seriousness of what Tinnitus can cause. It affects a large number of military personnel.

For those who are unfamiliar with Tinnitus, it is described as follows:
Tinnitus is a condition in which you hear ringing or other sounds in one or both ears. When you have tinnitus, the noise you hear isn’t caused by external sounds, and most people can’t hear it. Tinnitus is a common affliction. It affects 15% to 20% of the population, with older adults being the most affected.
I had no idea it was a COVID-19 side effect, but it seems to be for certain people who have taken the drug for a long time. It’s also a vaccine side effect, according to what I’ve read.
I was sick for a long time with COVID. Thankfully, the only side effect I experienced was some numbness, which has mostly subsided.
After contracting COVID-19, Kent Taylor, the CEO of the popular restaurant chain “Texas Roadhouse,” developed a serious case of Tinnitus.
Unfortunately, it got the best of him, and he committed suicide at the age of 65.
From the pages of The Blaze
Taylor died on Thursday, according to WCMH-TV.
Taylor’s family confirmed in a statement that the CEO “took his own life” after suffering from “post-COVID-related symptoms, including severe tinnitus.”
“Kent battled and fought like the former track champion that he was, but the pain that had become unbearable in recent days became unbearable,” the family said in a statement. “However, in true Kent style, he always found a way to help others. He recently pledged to fund a clinical study to assist military personnel who suffer from tinnitus.”
“We will miss you, Kent,” the restaurant wrote on Facebook. We get to say we [love] our jobs every day because of you and your Texas Roadhouse dream.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic last year, Taylor made headlines by donating his salary to frontline restaurant workers.
According to The Hill, Taylor’s base salary donation was “just under $525,000,” and his bonus was also $525,000.
At the time, a spokeswoman said, “On a prorated basis, the foregone salary and bonus would be just under $1 million gift to employees.”
“Kent leaves an unmatched legacy as a people-first leader, which is why he often said that Texas Roadhouse was a people company that just happened to serve steaks,” the family and the restaurant said in a joint statement. Over the last 28 years, he has influenced the lives of hundreds of millions of workers and visitors. Through his generous and often anonymous donations, he influenced hundreds of thousands of people.”
Jerry Morgan has been named CEO of “Texas Roadhouse” in the wake of Mr. Taylor’s death.
