JERSEY CITY, NJ — Bruce Springsteen's son was sworn in this week as a firefighter with the Jersey City Fire Department, along with 15 others.
Sam Springsteen was joined by his famous father and mother, Patti Scialfa, at City Hall along with Mayor Steven Fulop and other city officials.
The Boss and Scialfa sat in the front row as their 25-year-old son was sworn into the newest class.
"We're very proud," Bruce Springsteen told reporters at the ceremony. "We're just excited for him today."
Jersey City officials say this is the fire department's 10th class since Fulop took office. More than 200 firefighters have been hired since 2013. The department now has 666 members, its largest number ever.
