This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Jonathan Ielpi, FDNY, Squad 288, who was killed on September 11, 2001.

Jonathan Lee Ielpi, 29, of Great Neck, was a New York City firefighter assigned to Squad 288 in Maspeth, Queens. He phoned his parents to let them know that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. “Jon, please be careful,” his father told him. His body was recovered in the stairwell of the south tower on Dec. 11, 2001.

Jonathan Ielpi’s youngest son, Austin, was just 3 years old when his father was killed.
