EJ Mascaro, of Ladson SC, Firefighter for the City of North Charleston, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, January 19, 2017. He was 34. The son of David L. Mascaro Jr. and Glenda Artman Mascaro, he was born January 7, 1983 in Erie, PA.
EJ was a 2002 graduate of McDowell High School, Erie, PA. He was a United States Army Veteran, serving two and a half tours in Iraq, ultimately earning a Purple Heart, the Bronze Star and the Presidential Citation. EJ was a true Patriot.
