He joined the FDNY Bureau of Fleet Services in 2014, assigned to the Coney Island repair facility and later, the Review Avenue facility, where he worked in the ambulance repair shop.⁣

“Behind the thousands of calls our members respond to every day is a team of dedicated and skilled mechanics who ensure our ambulances are running 24/7,” said Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “James Villecco was one of those truly unsung heroes in our Department whose outstanding work provided medical care for the people of our city. The entire Department mourns his loss.”⁣

A resident of Staten Island, Mr. Villecco was a solid tradesman, beloved husband and father, and a friend to all he worked with each day. He was a six year Veteran of the United States Army. He is survived by his wife, Joy, and daughter, Jessica.
