The Lehighton Fire Department mourns the loss of our Chief, John “Jack” Kuller, Jr. on April 22, 2011. Jack joined the Lehighton Fire Department in August of 1979 and after working his way through the ranks to become Chief In 1996. Jack was a great friend to many and was always good to offer a story of good times he had with the fire department. Jack was a great leader who was always willing to offer assistance and advice to his subordinate firefighters. Jack was the leader many strive to be. He was never afraid to put on the gloves and set an example by working as hard as he expected from his team. Jack will be greatly missed by his brothers at the department and the community at large. The town of Lehighton lost a great member of its community and a dedicated firefighter. Jack will always be remembered for his laughter, his jokes and the tireless dedication he gave to make the Lehighton Fire Department an example to the firefighting community. Rest easy 501 and look upon us as we continue to follow the path you had started.
