Firefighter Jeffrey Palazzo, 33, enlisted in the Coast Guard in 1988 and remained a member of the Coast Guard Reserve. He came to Rescue 5 just 18 months before 9/11, after five years at Ladder 109 in Brooklyn. He had recently completed his scuba training and was a natural. 
John Drury, another firefighter from Rescue 5, wrote that Palazzo “was tremendously sincere. He was not only passionate about his work as a rescue firefighter, but was always quick to tell you a caring story about his own family.” Palazzo left behind two daughters.
