The final member of Ladder 9 to list is Jeffrey Walz, a 37-year-old firefighter who left a career in engineering to follow his father into the fire service. He met his wife when his unit was called to a rowdy Halloween party where she was dressed as a Dalmatian. Once told they couldn’t have children, their “miracle” child – just three on 9/11 received the full attention of his father every Thursday (his day off) when they would go together to the zoo or a baseball game or the park.┬áHe was posthumously promoted to Lieutenant.
