EDISON, N.J. — Sam Springsteen, the son of legendary New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen, has been hired as a Jersey City firefighter, his beaming mom said in an Instagram post on Thursday.
“You followed your dreams...JC firefighter .. Stay safe .. love your brave heart,” Patti Scialfa posted in congratulating the 25-year-old.
Springsteen is the youngest of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa’s three children.
Jersey City officials did not respond to a request for comment.
The Jersey Journal reported in March that the youngest Springsteen was one of hundreds who took the civil service exam to become a firefighter.
Springsteen graduated from the Monmouth County Fire Academy in 2014 and has served as a member of the volunteer Colts Neck Fire Department in Monmouth County.
