Christopher Mozzillo, 27, passed the FDNY exam when he was 18 and then waited YEARS for an opening, which he finally got at 25, following his father into the profession.

Nicknamed “The Bull,” friends claimed that “he wasn’t afraid of anything.” As a skier he hit the black diamond slope two hours after he first learned to ski. When scuba diving on wrecks, he’d sit on the bow of the sunken vessel and feed the sharks that swam by. His family remembered his gusto for life was so strong that he hardly ever slept.
