Fuller seminary's emergency expert rescues his own family

Eric Jessen Star-News

Reporter Adam Poulisse of the Pasadena Star-News wrote this story about Fuller's own Eric Jessen following a fire that destroyed his family's apartment. Jessen, who works in the Human Resources Department and has been trained by the City of Pasadena to help the seminary in the event of disasters, says he used his training to save his family that night. Poulisse tweeted his story and a short video clip of Eric receiving donations from the Salvation Army with the hashtag #12DaysofUnsungHeroes.

"It's tremendous irony," Jessen said. "If somebody's going to have their apartment light up on fire, I was glad it was me."
