Officer Thomas Gorman was one of the many who died during the tragic events on September 11, 2001. Tom was a member of the Port Authority Emergency Services Unit working out of the Journal Square PATH station in Jersey City when the attacks occurred. Tom and fellow officers rushed over to the World Trade Center to help rescue the thousands of people in the towers.
Tom was always dedicated to saving lives. Before joining the Port Authority, he was a firefighter with the Bayonne Fire Department. He was also an avid blood donor.
Several times a year, Tom would roll up his sleeve to donate blood. It was something he did naturally, believing in the importance of the act and what it could mean for others. Over the years Tom donated gallons, making his final donation on September 10, the day before the terrorist attacks.
Tom is one of the many heroes lost that day but never forgotten.
