Bruce Springsteen’s Son Was Just Sworn In As A New Jersey Firefighter

Congratulations to the younger Springsteen!

Rocker Bruce Springsteen may have been born to run, but his son, Sam Springsteen, was born to save lives. On Jan. 15, the younger Springsteen was sworn in as a Jersey City, New Jersey, firefighter.

The 26-year-old was among 15 new firefighters entering the profession during a ceremony at City Hall. He graduated from the Monmouth County Fire Academy in 2014 and also served as a volunteer firefighter with several different stations, including Colts Neck Fire Department in Colts Neck, N.J.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop took to Twitter to share some photos of the Springsteens, including Bruce’s wife, Patti Scialfa, from the event and express his congratulations to all the new firefighters:

“The Boss @springsteen + Patti visited us in #JerseyCity Hall today,” he wrote. “They’re such nice ppl. We got to spend some time in my office talking about music but more than that they’re proud parents of a new JC Firefighter. Congrats to all the new FF joining the FD anywhere.”

Scialfa, of course, also supports her son wholeheartedly. In August 2019, Scialfa took to Instagram to express her pride in his accomplishments:
