Lt. Dennis Mojica has one of the biggest smiles of any of the 343 in his official photograph. This 50-year-old was a 29-year FDNY veteran. He came to the department after six years in the Navy. Engaged to be married just nine months earlier, his fiance said that firefighting for him was “his dream, his life, and his first love.” He hid the engagement ring inside the dessert she was served at her favorite restaurant. “For an old guy, I’m still trying to be romantic.”
