I left this on a tribute page but wanted to share it here also. As ten years approaches, he is still remembered. Love to you all, Ted
It was only a couple of days ago, visiting a professional site I hadn't been on in 10 years that I saw the name James Corrigan mentioned as a victim of 9/11. Being a retired fire officer from Brooklyn, I had gone thru the list of FDNY victims a number of times but hadn't gotten through all the others. Jimmy and I worked together in Flatbush for 5 years. We worked the same tours and spent a lot of time together. We both commuted a distance and joked regularly about the trips. We were a very close company and were especially known for spending a lot of time in a room we made in the basement of the fire house. When I got promoted, I lost contact with Jim but then started seeing him again when we both worked downtown NY. On the eve of its second anniversary, it's as fresh in my mind as it was watching that day. That Jim was in the thick of it comes as no surprise. The members of the "Pride of Flatbush" strived to make it the best of the bravest. I will miss you Jim, god bless and my prayers are with your wife and children.
