About Mark Lee
Fire Capt. Mark Lee
9/11 First Responder and Jersey City Fire Dept. Engine Co. 10- Group C
Captain Lee was Jersey City firefighter who worked in the recovery efforts at Ground Zero after the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11. Despite his deteriorating health, Lee continued to fight major fires in Jersey City before ultimately succumbing to respiratory complications in 2013. He left behind the legacy of a man devoted to his community, particularly those in need. Please help us to honor his life by supporting the 4th Annual Memorial 5K Race & 1 Mile Walk in honor of Fire Captain Mark Lee.
