  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.

  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.

  10. We lived directly behind Anthony Jovic and his family. I remember the laughter of the family as they played in the yard and pool. As I was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism on 9/11, it was a few weeks before I could pay my respects to the family. Anthony is always remembered.

  17. I’ve been a volunteer firefighter for roughly 2 1/2 years at this point. I’ve been wanting to do a 9/11 memorial stair climb for years even before getting into firefighting, and today on September 16th, 2023, I had the honor to do just that in the neighboring city of my hometown. I was instructed to take a lanyard carrying an ID of one of the hundreds of fallen firefighters, and I had the pleasure of picking up the one of Lt. Jovic. It was honor to walk and climb in the memory of him, as well as his fallen brothers and sisters. God bless his family and may he rest in peace.
