The Orange County and FDNY communities are mourning the tragic and sudden passing of active firefighter Jason Baldwin at the age of 36. Baldwin, from Warwick, passed away unexpectedly at Westchester Medical Center Feb. 25, according to his obituary.
"Jason will be remembered for his unwavering love for his family, his kindness, and his humor. He was a voracious reader and was always reading more than one book at a time. Jason loved sports of all kinds, but weightlifting was his passion. He never skipped leg day.
Jason’s humor was the best and his specialties included delivering one-liners and quoting The Simpsons. When not at work, Jason could be found playing with dinosaurs, firetrucks, and any construction vehicle with his son, Greyson or hiking and exploring new places with his wife, Kelly, or just having a beer at Pennings with his best friend, Chris.
No one will be able to fill the void that Jason’s death leaves in his friends and families’ hearts."
He was a fireman at Ladder Company 46 and served with the FDNY for 9 years.
Baldwin is formerly of Chester and New Windsor. He leaves behind his wife, Kelly, and their 2-year-old son, Greyson. Funeral services will be held today at St. Stephens on Sanfordville Road in Warwick at 12:30 p.m, which can also be viewed online.
A scholarship fund has been set up by the FDNY Foundation to benefit Baldwin‘s son.
