Congratulations are in order for Jason Rock, choir director at Massillon Intermediate/Junior High School, as he began serving as North Lawrence Volunteer Fire Department Chief on January 1! He has been with the fire department since 2004, and is the seventh chief in the department’s 61 year history.
From the article in the Massillon Independent:
You might say firefighting struck a chord with Jason Rock at an early age.
Growing up in Toronto, Ohio, he spent a lot of time with his grandfather while his parents were working. Grandpa Bill Bobson was a founding member of the Knoxville Fire Department in Jefferson County.
“I was always hanging out with him, and firefighting seemed pretty awesome to do,” Rock said. “So I stuck with it.”
