Jack joined the FDNY on October 4‚ 1969. He worked in all five boroughs achieving numerous medals and three Medals of Valor. He reached the rank of Battalion Chief in August 1994. He responded to the World Trade Center bombing in 1993‚ the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995‚ and was last seen heading towards the towers on 9-11.
He is missed by all‚ especially by his wife‚ Maureen‚ and his five children-Ryan‚ Jeremy‚ Jacqueline‚ Sean‚ and Patrick. His easy way and smiling face are what we remember. His favorite things were his computer‚ 7-11 coffee‚ and a good plate of food.
In spite of his medals and credentials‚ he was a very humble person‚ a regular guy. The proudest accomplishments of his life are his love for Maureen and his five children.
