  4. I never knew that someone with the same last name as mine passed away during this event. My last name is very uncommon especially in the Mexican community. RIP LT

  5. I met Lt. Mojica years ago in the Bronx at the home of his best friend Mario. He was handsome, kind, and focused on others as opposed to himself. He was a protector with a great big heart. Thank you for your service and most honorable sacrifice.

  6. Dennis was a highly respected professional.

    At the time of his passing few people in the world had his combination of knowledge, experience and the ability to perform under pressure.

    I had the honor of knowing Dennis in the last years before 9/11.

    I miss Dennus and will remember him always.

  8. I was at his funeral. It was a sad day that everyone who could fit into St. Patrick’s Cathedral squished their way as close to the front as possible. I remember how the Country came together at this time. It’s been 19 years and still the memory burns. I pray for him and his family as well as all of the emergency services people. Can Never Forget.

  9. I met Dennis at the International Fire-Fighters Conference in Dallas, TX in 2000. He was very friendly, kind and sincere about his career as a firefighter. I was saddened to hear of the passing of this remarkable firefighter on 9/11 along with all others that lost their lives.

  10. I ran my first 5K today and I was the one honored to bear your name across my chest. I dedicated this run this run to you. My strength comes from the Lord, but you were heavy on my mind. The epitome of a warrior. I wanted to stop for a break but I knew you didn’t have the opportunity to stop. Maybe you did, but you chose to give it your all, so I gave it my all. I will work tirelessly to try to fill the shoes of the rare breed of great men like you. Thank you for being a point of light.
