Thieves Steal Medals from Fallen Worcester Firefighter's Family

Medals, photos and other cherished items were stolen from the home of fallen Worcester Firefighter Timothy Jackson this week.

“It’s personal I don’t really know how to describe it,” Timothy Jackson Jr. told WBZ-TV of the Wednesday break-in.

Jackson was among six firefighters who died at the Worcester Cold Storage Warehouse fire on Dec. 3, 1999. 

When they broke into his home, they stole a safe that contained Jackson's fire department badges, letters of support, photos and much more. The items not only came from his time on the fire department, but also as a soldier in Vietnam, WBZ reported.

“I don’t think they know exactly what they have,” he said. “It means a lot to me.”
