The former vice president and his wife, Former Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden, have had Beau on their mind throughout 2020.
The couple held a private memorial service in late May to mark the fifth anniversary of his death.
Beau had survived the 1972 car accident that killed his mother — Biden's first wife, Neilia Hunter — and the couple's 1-year-old daughter, Naomi. Beau and his younger brother, Hunter, survived.
Just before the fifth anniversary of Beau's death, Biden told Late Show host Stephen Colbert that his son has been in the back of his mind since launching his 2020 campaign last April.
"Every morning I get up, I ask myself, 'Is he proud of me?' Am I meeting the requirement that I promised him that I would do?" Biden told Colbert, adding that Beau was his "soul" and that Hunter was his "heart."
