Ken was born on the 4th of July in New Jersey. Growing up, he hated fireworks and sirens so, it came as a huge surprise to his family when he decided to become a police officer and firefighter. He was working as a special for Middletown Police Department when he got the call to become a full-time officer with the Port Authority of NY and NJ. Ken loved to rescue dogs, especially pit bulls, and always looked forward to engaging with kids in the community.


On September 11, 2001, when Ken heard about the attacks, he rushed from his post at the PATH station on 33rd street, commandeered a taxicab, and went to the World Trade Center. Ken gave his life that day in the line of duty at the age of 31.


Ken loved working in the community in his role as a police officer and as a volunteer firefighter with Belford Engine in New Jersey. He had an infectious smile and an uncontrollable urge to play practical jokes whenever possible. This foundation was created to carry on his legacy of helping people in need.
