In 1980 he joined the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey where he served for 21 years until his untimely death on September 11, 2001.
Tony earned a BS in Business Management from St. Peter’s College and a Masters Degree in Business from Seton Hall University. He later served as an assistant professor of business in the Masters Program at Seton Hall . He was also a graduate of the FBI National Academy. At the time of his death, Tony served as a member of the ALEAN Board of Directors.
On 9/11/01 Tony entered the North Tower to help evacuate innocent victims and was killed when that tower collapsed.
In 2002 ALEAN named its annual scholarships in honor of Tony, a fitting tribute to one who dedicated his life to the higher education of law enforcement professionals and their families.
