  1. During a 9/11 Memorial service in my hometown today. I received an information card on Lt. Jovic inside of the service program. I just felt a need to learn something about him.
    I just wanted to say to his family that we haven’t forgotten, nor will we ever.

  2. On September 11th, 2016 a group of us went to Red Rocks Amphitheater to take part in the 9-11 Stair Climb. We were each given a badge with a fallen firefighter that we could keep in our thoughts during the 110-story climb. Just wanted his family to know that I will forever be reminded of Anthony M. Jovic from that day forward. He made the ultimate sacrifice and while doing his job. I hope his family can find some peace knowing that this man gave his life to try and save others. We all can only hope to aspire to be that selfless. God speed.

  3. On September 10, 2016, I chose Anthony as one of the three firemen I carried during the Yellow Springs Ohio 9/11 memorial stair climb. I completed the climb in full turnout gear carrying an air pack to honor the fallen. I now carry Anthony’s information badge in my turn out gear.

  5. I had the honor to climb today in Anthony’s honor at the Pierce Memorial Stair Climb at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI. I can only hope and pray that my climbing and donations of friends and family help those in need. We will never forget the sacrifice of him and the other 342 Firefighters who fell that day rushing in to help others.

  7. I continue to this day wearing a memorial bracelet given to me during my 1st deployment into Afghanistan over a decade ago. I have made 3 memorial stair climbs in the honor and memory of Lt Anthony Jovic and other brave 1st responders since then. I concluded my service in the military and contracting, but could not go back to a corporate desk job. I am now a 10-year veteran 1st responder, motivated by those who served before me. Thank you all for your continued efforts to memorialize those who lost their lives on 9-11-01.
