Remembering Gerard on the 20th anniversary of 9/11...
Cindy Roe
September 7, 2021
I personally never got to meet him but, I heard he was a amazing person and I know that he knew he wanted to be a firefighter all his life. My Great- Uncle Gerard was born a firefighter and like most people who went up the twin towers did not make it out and died when the North tower collapsed at 10:28 am eastern time. He was born a firefighter and died a firefighter " god rest his soul".

To Dewan Family & friends
I'm so sorry that you have lost a love one. I know it must be painful. I almost just lost a love one. I can't imagen what you went through because you really lost a love one, I almost did. Your family are so strong. I'm sorry. Only the people who lost a family and friend on September 9, 2001 really know what you guys are going though. I will never forget Jerry, and he give up his life. I never met Jerry but he sounds like amazing person. I bet he is. I will never forget when I was reading messages people wrote because my nieces birthday is April 16th. Happy early birthday, Jerry. My life is forever changed by knowing Jerry give up his life. I wish I was able to meet Jerry. I will keep your Jerry in my prayers. Also, I hope everyone will eventually knew Gerard P. Jerry Dewan name, and what he did. I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings in any way. Again I'm so sorry about losing a friend/family member

In the summer of 2017 our family visited a friend who lives in Bass River, Cape Cod, and we planned to go to New York and visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum afterwords.
On our way to Bass River we made a stop to have something to eat in Weymout, East Braintree, where we happen to see a man wearing a t-shirt with the text FF Gerard Dewan 9/11/01 FDNY 3 Truck'.
We realized that this had to be a relative or a friend of a brave firefighter who lost his life on 9/11.
We wrote down the name and when we went to the 9/11 Memorial Museum, we looked up his his obituary. Obviously we never knew Jerry, but during our visit he was on our minds constantly. When we learned that his truck, the FDNY Ladder 3, also became part of the memorial, we felt even more close to him.
We want to let family and friends of Jerry know, that even though we never knew him, and we life all the way in the Netherlands, to us he represents a hero, and he his story made such a great impression to us.
We wish all the best to Jerry's family and friends.
Kind regards from the De Rie family, Hoorn, The Netherlands.

So sorry for your lost. It is very difficult to lose a love one. There are satisfying answers to life big questions. Please read Proverbs 2:1-5

I'm a firefighter in Northern Colorado. This year I had the honor of climbing for Firefighter Dewan at the Denver Stair Climb. For when times I wanted to stop, I looked at the picture of "Jerry" and kept going. Just like he and his fellow brothers did that day. I shall never forget.

It's been 14 long yrs since I've heard your voice, since I've seen your amazing smile and not a day goes by that you're are not terribly missed. So much has happened in that time and I know you're looking down on all of us and keeping us safe as you've always done. The pain of losing you will never get easier and I will hold on tight to the memories that we shared until we meet again. Love you and miss you bunches & bunches.

I never knew Jerry. I am working on a 9-11 memorial project with someone he was very special too. Reading through his obituary he sounded like a wonderful person, loving and a caring soul. I am sure he is sorely missed. My aunt passed away that day in Tower 2, I am grateful that she was in such amazing company. Jerry, like so many emergency responders paid the ultimate price to try to save lives that Tuesday morning. Their selflessness saved many lives that day. Its been almost 14 yrs and it's still heartbreaking to think of all the amazing people we lost and how we all wish they were still here. I will never forget all of faces and stories I have come to know during this memorial project. I will say a prayer for you Jerry.

September 16, 2014
When people say “always remember” I remember the heroes of 9-11, the people that ran into a burning building. I don't just think about remembering the act of terrorism, I think about all the heroism. There were far more heroes of 9-11 than terrorists. I hope it brings comfort to the families of the people that died on 9-11 are remembered for their bravery.

I have come to know your nephews, Mark and Mike very well. They speak highly of you. I am not surprised. God Bless You, Jerry.

Just wanted to pass along that I am deployed again, this time to Manas Air Base, formerly called Ganci Air Base after Peter Ganci (NYFD Fire Chief on 9/11), it seems that you are always in the front of my mind as I walk around here and realize that this place, this deployment was established right after and in reaction to 9/11. It is still unbelieveable to me that you made the ultimate sacrifice, you will always be my hero!

Another year without you. Strange how so many years have passed and it still seems unreal. Although your presence has been felt in so many ways lately. Missing you like crazy and still finding myself picking up the phone to call you at times. Still waiting for the day that it gets easier.

Ten years have passed since that awful day. Though we did not know you personally, we were originally from West Roxbury and feel a closeness to you and your family. During yesterdays memorial on TV we waited to hear your name read. We said a prayer for you and your family. Rest in Peace Jerry.

Jerry,
We have not seen each other since 8th grade back in Sacred Heart School, Mr. Dempsey's Class (1981).
My thoughts and prayers have and still go out to you and your family since that horrible day in 2001.

You used to make me laugh in class. You were very funny and that is a trait many will remember you by as well as being a good guy.
You are missed!

10 years and at times it seems like it was just yesterday. Even after all this time the pain of losing you is almost unbearable. I miss talking to you, hearing your voice, I miss your smile, I miss everything about you including the times you drove me nuts. No matter what went on or how much time pasted you were always there. What I wouldn't give to have just one more day with you. Love you and missing you bunches &bunches. XoXo

An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Hey Jerry,

Eight horrible years ago today, you were taken from us. Two weeks ago, I had a very hard day, I visited your firehouse finally. I took me eight years to visit your firehouse. Gosh, I thought I could do it. After seeing your plaque outside, I finally had enough guts to ring the bell. I told myself no tears, he wouldn't want it this way. Well, I was ok, until I told your brother firefighter why I was there and how long it took me to get myself there. That is when the tears would not stop. He told me that he only worked with you for a few months. He showed me the granite images of you and the guys on the wall. It was if you were smiling right at me. Another firefighter came out and said that they were surprised what a quiet day it was,no calls. I was there for about an hour. As I left, after many hugs, laughs and tears, the alarm went off and the guys went out. He remarked, it is as if Jerry wanted you to take all the time you needed. I guess he was right. It was if you were there right next to me. (I even wore my Red Sox shirt -- in New York!) Well, you are in my thoughts every day, especially today. You will always be remembered. Until we meet again. Joanne

Dear Jerry,

Hard to believe it is 8 years later. Not a day goes by that you are not thought of, your service card is still on our refrigerator the one my mom (Joan Dewan) sent after your funeral service. Also living in a state were fires are a regular occurence. It is not hard to think of you or any firefighters as you guy risk your lives for us every time you get a call. So know you will always be remembered.

Your cousin,

Dear Gerard Dewan,
Thank you for your service in the World Trade Center attack. You sacrificed your life and that is the ultimate sacrifice to give to another human being.
You were only 35 when you fell in the World Trade Center. Coming from a family of firefighters, your Dad and all your older brothers, no wonder you took over the family business. You always loved kids. You always planned on marrying and having kids. During your five years of service as a firefighter you always did your best.
You were one of the first firefighters to enter the World Trade Center with the rest of ladder 3. Sadly you never walked out. You gave your life for the people in the World Trade Center and for that I give my deepest appreciation.
Thank you again for your service.

Sincerely,
Andrew Chapman

Just had to wish you a Happy St. Patty's Day. It's days like this that make it extra hard, how I wish my phone would ring and I could hear you say how you just walked in the parade and now you were having cocktails in some little Irish pub in the city. I miss you sooo much and wish more than anything that you were here or that i could at least see you 1 more time. luv ya bunches.

Well it's been awhile huh, I know you had a wonderful Christmas in heaven, surrounded by your loved ones. I think I just keep trying to convince myself that the more time passes by the better of a chance I'll have that your name won't be on this list. That maybe finally someone figured out that it was all just one big mistake. I guess the thought of you being gone forever just doesn't work for me. I miss you sooo much, and no matter how much time has gone by it doesn't get easier. I know I've said it before but it's only fitting considering that New Years is 2 days away. One of my favorite memories will always be the New Years Eve that we spent together, no big party, no crowds but we still had so much fun, I'll never forget it. luv ya bunches and missing you as usual..

Well Jerry, 7 years has come and gone. I can't still believe it. It seems like yesterday. I just came back from the memorial service at the federal building and was proud to be able to remember you. You and your family are still in my prayers. I wish I could just have one more Red Sox conversation with you. How I would get you going by saying someday they will make you a member of the dreaded empire and not Red Sox Nation. How we would laugh. I miss you bunches.

I can't believe it's been 7 years, I miss you so much and would do just about anything to see your face one last time and to hear your voice. People say it gets easier, well it's been 7 years and nothing has changed, the void is just as painful now. I was at the beach labor day weekend and that was rough, just standing there thinking about how many times you had jogged down that boardwalk and just wishing so much that I would see you again. Love ya bunches and missing you like crazy.

New Years eve is always a hard one, I remember spending that one New Years with you and although it was simple and quiet we still managed to have a wonderful time together. Missing you is the easy part, that just comes naturally the hard part is realizing that I can't pick up the phone to hear your voice or see you smile again. I miss ya bunches and I know you must have been watching over me last week, I know the outcome could have been so much worst. luv ya bunches!! I'll be cheering for the Pats =)

Some people say that times heals all wounds, well it's been 6 years since you were taken from us and I have to say I disagree. The hurt is as strong today as it was that horrible day, not a day goes by that I don't miss you or think of you. You know we've been going through a really rough time and not having you here to lean on makes it that much harder, my 2 rocks, you and Kat, haven't I lost enough. I feel like I'm being tested at times, I'm trying to stay strong but it's hard, so so so hard. First you, then Kat now Gail, why did this have to happen? It's just not fairthat she was also taken from us, no warning ,nothing, just gone. Please give her a million hugs from us. I love you bunches and I miss you more than you know.

I cannot believe it is 11 Sep 07. 6 years, and it feels like yesterday. I still can't think about you without crying. So much has happened since you have left us. I am now a JAG for the USAF. I am currently in Baghdad. Why did I join? To try to contribute to the effort, to protect us from 9/11 happening again. You are part of who I am, and always will be. I hope you can look down and see how much you were loved. All my love.

Hey Jerry, well it is going to be 6 years. It seems like yesterday. Last week I went to West Rox with my uncle (he finally retired from BFD Ladder 18) to place a card at the firehouse. He knew 1 of the 2 guys killed at a restaurant fire. I was ok until I saw the plaque with your name on it. The tears just wouldn't stop. You were probably getting a good laugh while looking down at me. You are in my thoughts always.

How does any of it make sense, my heart feels like it's been ripped into a million pieces. When you were taken from us she carried me, she became the strength that you always were and now who's going to guide me. What am I suppose to do without you and Kat. Take care of her like she look care of me. I love you and miss you more than anyone will ever know.

I almost don't know what to say, I miss you so much that it hurts. I couldn't help but think that if you were here you would probably be on your way to see your family for Thanksgiving and I would have talked to you on your cellphone the whole ride out. It's things like that, that I'll always remember and that I miss so much. Everyone thought we were a lil nuts but for us it was just the norm. I could hear you for hours and never get tired of talking to you. As heart broken as I feel I guess this Thanksgiving I am thankful for having had you in my life, even if it was for such a short time. I love you and miss you every single day. I know what you would say to me right know... "so much for not knowing what to say"... =)

I am just taking an opportunity to let you know that we all miss you very much. MG asks about you on a regular basis. Just today we looked at my fondest picture of you and the little boy using the hose at the firehouse. I will never forget, you're my friend and my hero.

Well Jerry, it has taken me 5 yrs to write this. It is still too hard to do. I still cannot believe that you are gone, but you really are not, your watching over all of us. I always looked forward to my trips to NY because I would give you that last minute call and you, giving me a hard time as usual, would try and make time for me. A Southie girl and a Roslindate guy. I hope you know how much you are missed. :(

September 10, 2006
Around this time 5 years ago I remember trying to convince you to go to VA with me. I'll never forget the last time I spoke to you. I called to nag you about not coming with me and we spoke for awhile. I remember you assuring me that I would OK by myself but at the same time telling me to be careful and not to open the door for anyone. I remember looking out and seeing this little restaurant across the parking lot of the hotel and telling you "you see if you would have come we could be out having cocktails right now" =) The one thing that I constantly think about is if things would have had a different ending if you would have went with me. I miss you so much it hurts.
P.S. How about those Yanks =)

As always you have been on my mind and it has not gotten easier. You have left a void that cannot be filled. Not a day goes by that you are not missed and thought of. I am at a stand still right now and it's times like this that I need you the most. No matter what the situation was you always told me what I needed to hear not what I wanted to. I always say to myself what would Jerry have told me to do. Please guide me as you always have, I miss you now & always.

Why must things be so complicated, you know what I mean. Well I finally did it, stop that nasty habit, smoking. I know, you are just thrilled for me huh =), Remember me standing in the snow in shorts just to have a stupid smoke, I know very very sad. Anyways just wanted ya to know that I was thinking of ya. I miss ya and love ya to pieces. Muuaahhhhhh xoxo

What I wouldn't do to hear your voice once more. I miss you like crazy, maybe it's that much harder to deal with now because of the holidays. On thanksgiving I stood on the porch looking down at the memorial and gave thanks for having had you in my life. As sad as it makes me that you are not here with us, I am grateful for every minute that we spent together. Talking, laughing, crying, I miss it all. I love you bunches.

4 years already, sometimes it feels like a lifetime ago and then some days it feels like yesterday. Sweetie you are missed more then you could possibly imagine, I hope you know just how many lives you touched during your short time with us. Sunday was especially hard but knowing that you were with me, feeling your presence made it bearable. We finally finished the memorial garden and it looks wonderful. I love sitting their talking to you because I know that just as before, you are always their for me when I need someone to talk. Some people might think it's wierd but I know your listening and I take all your signs to heart. I luv ya and miss ya more & more each day.

I had a dream a few weeks ago and when I awoke all I could remember was your wonderful smile. You can't imagine how real it felt. Although it was great to see your face and that smile again, it hurt more than you know when I realized that it was just a dream. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you but since then you have been on my mind non stop. I miss you so much and it's so difficult because I don't think that everyone around me knows how much you meant to me and what kind of relationship we shared. The only thing worst then not having you here is not being able to mourn your loss with those around me. I know they would have loved you just as much as I did. I don't think this will ever get easier. I luv ya and miss ya more then you know.

As your birthday approaches I have been thinking of you and missing you more then usual. Not a day goes by that I don't find myself thinking of you and wishing that you were here, wishing that I could hear your voice. I often wonder if you knew just how much you meant to me and how much of an impact you had on my life. I always think about our last converstaion on 9/8/01 and I can't help but think if things would have turned out differently if you would have went to VA with me. I guess I'll never know. The void that your loss has left will only be filled when we meet again. You were truly the best friend that anyone could ever ask for. Kayla is almost 2 now and she looks at your picture everyday. I promised you that she would know about you and what a wonderful person you were and I intend to keep that promise. I luv ya bunches & bunches and I miss ya so much. Give my Grandma a big hug for me.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and how much I truly miss you. Whenever something happens good or bad I still run to the phone to call you. When that happens I find myself becoming angry and bitter because I feel so alone. I can't believe that it's going to be 3 years already although at times it feels like an eternity since the last time I heard your voice. I know that I shouldn't feel this way but I still think that it's so unfair that your gone and I still ask why..... I'm lost without you and I will always love you.
Remember .... Red Sox>> Bill B. =) hahaha
luv ya lots,
Your Sweet Magoo

To the Dewan (Gilligan) Families;
I know it is belated but I grew up with Gerard on Wellsmere Ter. Roslindale, MA and went to Sacred Heart School together and Gerard was a great neighbor and friend to be with. He is our "Hero" and will never forget what he did for America. Until we meet again. (There is a memorial sign dedicated to Gerard at the corner of the "Terrace" and Wellsmere Rd.) (off Wash. St.)
