Ronald Essex currently serves as the SPAA Combined Chapter Development


He is a proud graduate of DuSable High School in Chicago with a little more than two

and one half years of college. He dedicated more than 15 years as an Assistant Head Deacon for his local church it is there where he learned the importance of effectively serving those less fortunate.


This passion would ultimately lead him to becoming head of the Benevolence Committee

at his church.

It was there that he spent more than 3 years working first hand with those who were met with life’s unfortunate special challenges such as loss of employment, severe poor health and often times displaced from their place of residence and in desperate need of emergency housing. It was there that through the help of God he was able to deeply connect with the trust of people that he would do all possible to help them. He mastered fund raising efforts enough to keep the committee in a strong financial position to be able to serve and assist them.

Currently Ronald Essex is a retired veteran fire fighter after serving the City of Chicago for more than 28 years. His amazing career started back in the year of 1988. He often said; This calling never felt like a job but truly a service to the people of Chicago. But looking back over the years during his tour of service and witnessing the devastation and destruction that fire leaves in the lives of people Ronald decided to fight fire in a more pro-active way. That direction was by means of Public Educating in regards Fire Safety. Through application and interviewing he was accepted into The Public Education Division of the Chicago Fire Dept. With extensive fire/data training along with his prominent speaker ability for more than 7 years he provided numerous safety workshops, seminars and lectures regarding Fire and Public safety. With this pro-active concept hopefully many may never have to feel the devastating wrath of fire.
