You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence. - Charles Austin Beard

With the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 coming up I wanted to re-post the bio of Joseph that I did for the fifth anniversary.



In August 2001, eight years after joining the New York City Fire Department, Joseph P. Spor Jr. transferred into Rescue 3 in the Bronx.It was where he belonged all along.Spor, the youngest of six children and the only boy, had finally caught up to his namesake father, who was also a firefighter and also a member of Rescue 3, also known as Big Blue.It had taken the younger Spor a while to get there. After graduating from Iona College, Spor became a Manhattan financial analyst. But office work never really suited him, and in 1994 he switched careers, joining Ladder Company 38, also in the Bronx.Away from the firehouse, Spor worked with his hands as a contractor, building decks and cabinets. He put his talent for carpentry to work at his own home in Somers, N.Y., where he and and Colleen, his wife of nine years, were raising four children, ages 6 years to 9 months. One of his final projects was a playroom for the kids.An avid weightlifter, Spor was in such terrific shape that his fellow firefighters believed he was darn near indestructible.The 35-year-old firefighter was in the south tower of the World Trade Center when it collapsed.
