Today’s service for Jesse was beautiful and although it started out rainy, it turned into a perfect, sunny fall afternoon.
This was my 3rd LODD fire department funeral in my short 6 year career with PGFD and it never gets any easier. No matter the cause, it’s always a tremendous loss and always too soon. Our Governor and Union President gave beautifully delivered speeches that were truly heartfelt and I was trying to hold back my tears the entire time, unsuccessfully so.
I’m glad I was able to say goodbye to Jesse one last time and that we were able to properly send him off as a department.
RIP Technician Jesse. W. McCullough🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤
I’ve been blessed in life to meet, work with and say goodbye to two great men. First was John “Skillet” Ulmschneider and now Jesse McCullough. Jesse I’ll always remember you as honest, unapologetic and unafraid. You’ve given me memories in a short time that will last a lifetime and another wise voice to hear in my head as I continue to walk through my life. It was an honor to share a table and a conversation with you and now on those long nights where I sit and slip into my head, I’ll always see you sitting there with Skillet because you’ll never truly leave me. Station 30 was always home to me and you were one of the reasons it felt more like home so this isn’t just a goodbye but a thank you! Thank you for being family in my second home. #McCulloughstrong#PGFD#Family#Station830

Food On The Stove is a non profit that provides firefighters with resources and education to help them live healthier. One of the ways we do this is through our Local Food for Local Heroes Initiative where we provide dinner for random firehouses.
On October 18th, 19th, and 20th we are having a fundraiser at Fishscale to support our cause. @wearefishscale specializes in artisanal chef-crafted wild-caught wood-grilled fishburgers that are made without breadcrumbs and fillers and are dressed with your choice of housemade organic condiments.
@wearefishscale has been kind enough to donate 15% of all meals purchased on those dates when you mention Food On The Stove. Meet us at 637 Florida Ave NW WDC.
Thanks for your support!
Jesse Mccullough I will miss you brother and I will keep your family in my prayers. I remember you being such a shining light that stood out in the fire house when I was assigned to Station 830 C-Shift. Many of times I used to relieve you from your shift (B-Shift), and you and “Skillet” would always find a way to make me laugh in the mornings. It’s safe to say all of C-shift used to look forward to you sticking around in the mornings back then to chat and maybe even have breakfast/coffee with us. Your spirit, character, personality, dedication, drive, and undeniable STRENGTH will truly be missed. You did an outstanding job serving the community, and what makes it even more honorable is that you always did it with a SMILE!! Rest In Peace Brother Jesse!! 😢👨🏻🚒🙏🏾 #McCulloughStrong#PGFD
