Ryan Sullivan is a dedicated public servant passionate about helping others on the front lines and behind the scenes. Currently serving as a Fire Department Captain in the Jackson Township Fire Department, located in Stark County, Ohio, Ryan brings over a decade of experience in the fire service, having commenced his journey in 2006.

Outside of his professional responsibilities, Ryan finds fulfillment in his roles as a devoted husband and father of three, residing in the serene landscapes of rural Ohio. Within the folds of family life, Ryan draws strength and inspiration to continue his tireless efforts in serving his community.

By sharing his story and extending a compassionate hand, Ryan hopes to illuminate the path toward wholeness and well-being for all who serve on the front lines.
