After a sudden and brief illness, 21st District Attorney General Kim Helper, 63, passed away peacefully on March 20, 2023, surrounded by family. She and her family have lived in Franklin for 25 years.

Helper was appointed and elected as District Attorney General for the 21st Judicial District in Tennessee in 2008. She began her career in public service in 1998 and worked as an Assistant Attorney General before joining the District Attorney’s office. Helper served as president of the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference from 2015 to 2016.

“General Helper’s service and devotion to justice and the people of Tennessee was unmatched. She dedicated her life to this work and for that we owe her our deepest gratitude,” said Guy Jones, TNDAGC executive director. “Deepest sympathy to her family and staff. She will be terribly missed.”
