Captain Jack Stevens
Captain Jack Stevens was killed in the ‘line of duty’ on June 30‚ 1986. He suffered fatal injuries when his ladder truck collided with a 26 ton dump truck at the intersection of Lindsay and University in Mesa. Captain Stevens died in surgery later that afternoon at a local Trauma Center. He was 33 years old‚ and a 10 year veteran of the department. He is survived by his wife Mary Beth and four daughters.
Captain Stevens was dedicated to the fire department‚ his family‚ and was a devoted Christian man. When on a vacation with his best friend‚ the question arose of what he would want on his headstone if he were to die unexpectedly‚ his headstone reads:
‘He served the purpose of God in his generation and fell asleep’
Captain Stevens is dearly missed by his brothers and sisters of the Mesa Fire Department‚ he was courageous and brave the day he was called home to the Lord!
