About Steven "Feel the Love" Reisman
Steven was an incredible father and a devoted husband. He lived a life filled with love, and he shared that love with everyone he came into contact with.
A veteran New York City firefighter, Steven was born in the Bronx and raised in Queens; he joined the FDNY in 1989. He worked as a firefighter in Engine 71/Ladder 55 in the South Bronx. Once promoted, Steven was assigned to Engine 307/Ladder 154 in Jackson Heights, Queens. He also spent time working at the Fire Academy and the Fire Safety Education Unit.
Steven enjoyed sports and was a talented athlete. He spent many years playing softball, football, and hockey. Steven’s love for his FDNY family was surpassed only by his love for his wife and children. A doting father, he was often found playing the prince while his daughter, Natalie, was the princess, or on a bug finding expedition with his son, Michael. He was happily married to his wife, Joanna, for twenty-four years.
Steven was honest, grateful, kind, and strong. A humble man with a great sense of inner peace, Steven, is survived by his wife, Joanna, and their children, Michael and Natalie, as well as his brother, Lou.
About the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
The Siller Family started the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to honor the memory of their brother, Stephen, a New York City firefighter who lost his life on September 11, 2001. The Foundation was built upon the mantra, “while we have time, LET US DO GOOD,” and continues Stephen’s legacy by supporting our nation’s first responders and service members.
Firefighter Stephen Siller lost his life while saving others. In his memory, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation developed the In the Line of Duty Program to honor the heroes that risk their lives every day. To date, the Foundation has spent over $100 million supporting the military and fallen first responders and their families. Our newest addition, the Gold Star Family Home Program, honors those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country by providing the surviving spouses and young children with a brand new, mortgage-free home.
The Smart Home Program provides mortgage-free smart homes to our most catastrophically injured service members. Each home is custom designed to address the unique needs of each individual.
Finally, the Fallen First Responder Home Program pays off the remaining mortgages for families left behind when a firefighter or police officer is killed in the line of duty. Upon hearing news of the tragic loss of a first responder, Tunnel to Towers deploys a rapid response team to immediately provide support to the family.
Your hard work on behalf of the Foundation helps us provide the support the families of our military and first responders so desperately need.
