On June 29, 2020, we lost Fire Captain Jason O’Brien after a courageous battle with job-related cancer.
Jason was born and raised in Escondido, California, where he lived with his mother, father, sister, and brother. He grew up always watching Emergency. From a very young age, Jason told his mom and dad he wanted to be a firefighter.
He dedicated 17 years of his life to his dream career as a firefighter with CAL FIRE. As a kid, he loved riding skateboards and bikes. As he got older, he enjoyed going to the desert and riding his ATV and camping.
He was always very quiet, but fun and full of life. He was a hard worker and very dedicated to his job. He was kind, caring, loving, and funny. He was an amazing husband and father to his kids—4 boys and 1 girl.
Jason will never be forgotten. He is always in our hearts and holds a special place for all those that he helped and touched.
