Paul “Axe” Laszczynski

North Jersey, NJ

Chapter – Forever

End Of Watch – 11 Sep 2001


Paul joined the North Jersey Chapter in 1996. He was a police officer with the Port Authority of NY/NJ PD. He was a member of the department’s Emergency Services Unit and was no stranger to hazardous situations, notably having carried a handicapped man down over 70 flights of stairs during the 1993 bombing at the World Trade Center. A big, good-looking guy who took great pride in maintaining a sharp appearance, it was often said that Paul never met a camera he didn’t like. Paul loved riding his Harley, as well as the brotherhood of the club. He was a solid friend and a formidable ally whose nickname derived from his tendency to cut quickly through all the drama and nonsense of a situation and get to the essentials of the problem.

On September 11, 2001, Paul was lost in the line of duty during the attacks on the World Trade Center.
