Neptune firefighter, EMT and US Army veteran remembered

jarvis_002Stacey LeAnne Jarvis, 28, a volunteer firefighter with the Neptune Fire Department – Liberty Fire Company and volunteer EMT with Neptune First Aid Squad, died at home on Tuesday in Asbury Park.

Stacey not only dedicated herself to her community, she was an eight-year veteran of the Army, serving in Germany and Iraq.

In the year since her honorable discharge as a Sergeant in the Army, Stacey set an example for volunteer service in Neptune, answering hundreds of EMS and fire calls. At the Monmouth County Fire Academy, she proved a leader among her class, impressing instructors and students alike.

Among her peers, Stacey was seen as an intelligent, witty and adventurous friend. We saw greatness in her future, and her unimaginable loss has left us heartbroken.
