Steven Daniel Ziskind, 22, a lifelong area resident, died on May 27, 2020 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. From Chris Jodlowski, Wiccopee Fire Company: "We get a lot of kids who come through the doors of the firehouse wanting to join. Some come with preconceived notions of how easy it's going to be or what they know or who they know. They come in with their war stories already written. Some know it all but are untrainable. Some know nothing but they've got something we can work with. We get every combination of everything in between. But every so often we get a kid who walks through the door and you just know he's different. Steven Ziskind was that kid. He walked through the door, quiet, unassuming. Round face. Dark hair. Kind eyes. And a backpack. And so, from the word go, he was "Dora." And he took that on with a smile."
